Franz Schubert was born on this date in 1797. Like Mozart, whose birthday was just last week, Franz Schubert was a brilliant and phenomenally prolific composer who died at a tragically young age.
One of my favorite pieces by Schubert is also one of his most well-known, the Impromptu in Gb, Op. 90, No. 3. You can hear a recording of it here. (Link to midi file is from The Internet Piano Page, which I only just discovered via a Google search.)
