Overture in D major, D. 590 ‘In the Italian Style’ by Franz Schubert

Schubert completed this overture in 1817. During the first few decades of the 19th century, opera was one of the most popular forms of musical entertainment. This led to a great deal of debate, particularly in Vienna, as to what was the ‘better’ style of opera. The two main contenders of operatic style were the Germanic and the Italian. This debate is sometimes called the ‘Opera Wars’.

The Germanic style of composers such as Carl Maria von Weber and later Richard Wagner, was usually based on folklore and the supernatural. The Italian style of composers such as Giaocomo Rossini and later Giuseppe Verdi focused more on the machinations of the nobility and their interaction with the working class. It is important to note that while this distinction in opera style was widespread, there are several examples of Germanic opera focusing on stories about the aristocracy, and Italian operas including elements of the supernatural.

By 1817, the 20-year-old Schubert was eager to reach further fame through opera. In an attempt to demonstrate his potential, he would compose two operatic overtures ‘In the Italian style’ and presented them to theatres around Vienna to gauge their reception.

This work is comprised of a single movement.

String Quartet No. 8 in B flat major, D. 112 by Franz Schubert

Schubert began work on this string quartet in September of 1811 while at the young age of 14. As with many of the instrumental works he composed in his adolescence, the work was intended to be performed by himself and other members of the Schubert family. In a note on the original score to this quartet, he finished the first movement in only a single day. The remainder of the quartet would be completed by the 13th of September 1811 while Schubert was on holiday after completing his teacher-training examinations.

While this work is listed as the quartet number 8, it was actually likely the second quartet Schubert completed. The persistent error is due to the first publication off his entire string quartet collection, which was done in 1890, after the composers’ death in 1828.

This quartet is comprised of four movements:
I. Allegro ma non troppo
II. Andante sostenuto
III. Menuetto: Allegro
IV. Presto

Overture in D major, D. 556 by Franz Schubert

Schubert completed this short work for orchestra in 1817, however the first public performance of the work would not take place until 1836, twelve years after Schubert’s death in 1828. In 1813 Schubert had finished his education at Stadtkonvikt (imperial Seminary) in Vienna, and returned home to live with this father in Himmelpfortgrund (a district in central Vienna, barely 5 minutes’ walk from the seminary). From 1814 to 1815 Schubert was enrolled at the St Anna Normal-hauptschule (secondary school) to continue his training to be a teacher of music.

Based on correspondence of the time it was clear Schubert did not enjoy his time at the school or as a teacher of music. Fortunately, in 1816 a close friend of Schubert’s called Franz von Schober would invite Schubert to stay at the Schober family lodge, freeing Schubert from teaching at the Anna Normal-hauptschule and allowing more time for composition.

This quartet is comprised of four movements:

Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D. 759 ‘Unfinished Symphony’ by Franz Schubert

In 1823 Schubert was awarded an honorary diploma from the city of Graz Music Society. In gratitude of this, Schubert decided to dedicate a symphony he had begun in 1822 to the society. After being awarded the diploma, Schubert sent the first two and complete movements to friend and fellow composer Anselm Hüttenbrenner, who at that time was a member of the society.

Despite the promising beginning of the first two completed movements, Schubert would only finish part of a potential third movement, and no surviving manuscript of a fourth movement composed specifically as part of this symphony remains.
In 1822 Schubert contracted syphilis, and by 1823 the symptoms had become pronounced. The combined effect of severe illness as well as the divided attention of working on multiple different works resulted in Schubert not returning to finish the symphony before his death in 1828.

Several composers have attempted to ‘finish’ the symphony, however the version here only includes the first and second movement completed by Schubert himself:
I. Allegro moderato
II. Andante con moto

Schubert completed an initial draft of this symphony in 1821. While parts of the work were fully orchestrated, other sections have only the melodic line complete with counterpoint and bass. The work was likely not completed by Schubert due to the composer diverting his attention to his opera Alfonso and Estrella which would be finished in 1822. The work has been completed by other composers, with the Brian Newbould version of 1980 being regularly performed.

This symphony is comprised of four movements:

Rondo in B minor for violin and piano, D. 895 by Franz Schubert

Schubert completed this work for piano and violin in 1826, with the premiere performance taking place in 1827 in Vienna. Schubert had composed the work specifically to be performed by Czech violinist Josef Slavik, and it was indeed Slavik on the violin for the premiere in 1827. It would sadly be one of the final works for chamber ensemble that Schubert would compose before his death in 1828.

Schubert completed this quintet in 1819 at the age of 22. The quintet is unusual in that instead of the ensemble containing a piano and string quartet, the ensemble includes a piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass.

The quintet is comprised of five movements:
I. Allegro vivace
II. Andante
III. Scherzo: Presto
IV. Andantino – Allegretto

Schubert likely completed his 9th symphony in 1828, with the premiere performance not being given until 1838, after the death of Schubert. The subtitle ‘The Great C major’ is likely due to the length of the symphony (which is longer than most) and also to differentiate it from the 6th symphony which was also in C major.

The work is comprised of four movements:
I. Andante – Allegro ma non-troppo – Più moto
II. Andante con moto
III. Scherzo. Allegro vivace

Der Terroranschlag vom Breitscheidplatz vor drei Jahren hat die Bundesrepublik aufgerüttelt. Zwölf Menschen sind gestorben, 55 wurden verletzt, einige davon schwer. Die Aufklärung des Falles ist bislang eher dürftig, und der Ex-Polizist Stefan Schubert zweifelt trotz des Untersuchungsausschusses an der Aufarbeitungsintensität. Schubert hat bereits zahlreiche Bücher zum Thema innere Sicherheit verfasst, sein jüngstes Werk heißt "Anis Amri und die Bundesregierung: Was Insider über den Terroranschlag vom Breitscheidplatz wissen".

Wie sich herausstellte, war Amri verschiedenen Geheimdiensten bereits lange Jahre bekannt. Schon in dem kleinen tunesischen Dorf Oueslatia, in dem er aufwuchs, waren viele junge Männer dem IS zugeneigt. Amri schloss sich den Extremisten an und kam 2011 nach Europa, zunächst nach Italien. Dort verbüßte er eine Haftstrafe, eine eigentlich vorgesehene Abschiebung wurde nicht vollzogen. Amri setzte daraufhin seine Reise nach Deutschland fort. Auch dort pflegte er enge Kontakte zu islamistischen Kreisen. All dies war dem Sicherheitsapparat bestens bekannt, aber nichts wurde unternommen, um den Gefährder aus dem Verkehr zu ziehen. So führt Schubert in seiner Analyse aus, dass Amri gezielt für die Informationsgewinnung eingesetzt wurde, um so IS-Terrorzellen in Libyen ausfindig zu machen. Also eine Geheimdienstoperation mit tödlichen Kollateralschäden? Eine Frage, der Jasmin Kosubek im Gespräch mit dem Ex-Polizisten und Autoren Stefan Schubert nachgeht.

Die so genannte Deutsche Messe (Originaltitel: „Gesänge zur Feier des heiligen Opfers der Messe“, D 872) ist ein geistliches Musikwerk des Komponisten Franz Schubert aus dem Jahre 1826.

Es umfasst acht Messgesänge und einen Anhang.

Der Text stellt keine Übersetzung der tradierten lateinischen Vorlagen dar, sondern beruht vielmehr auf der Sammlung Geistliche Lieder für das heilige Messopfer des Auftraggebers J. P. Neumann aus dem Jahre 1826. Während die lateinischen Texte des katholischen Ritus großteils den Lobpreis Gottes in den Mittelpunkt stellen, rücken die Texte der Deutsche Messe eher den Menschen mit seinen irdischen Sorgen und Nöten ins Blickfeld und sollen auch als Messandachten dienen. Dem Römischen Ritus vor der Reform von 1969 folgend besteht die Messe aus folgenden Teilen:

Zum Eingang („Wohin soll ich mich wenden“)
Zum Gloria („Ehre, Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe“)
Zum Evangelium und Credo („Noch lag die Schöpfung formlos da“)
Zum Offertorium („Du gabst, o Herr, mir Sein und Leben“)
Zum Sanctus („Heilig, heilig, heilig! Heilig ist der Herr!“)
Nach der Elevation, oder: Nach der Wandlung („Betrachtend Deine Huld und Güte“)
Zum Agnus Dei („Mein Heiland, Herr und Meister“)
Schlussgesang („Herr, Du hast mein Fleh’n vernommen“)
Anhang. Das Gebet des Herrn („Anbetend Deine Macht und Größe“)

Das Werk wurde von dem Professor an der Wiener Technischen Hochschule Johann Philipp Neumann, der auch die Texte verfasste, in Auftrag gegeben. Von Schubert selbst gibt es zwei Fassungen, eine für vierstimmigen gemischten Chor mit Orgel sowie eine weitere, die zusätzlich je zwei Oboen, Klarinetten, Fagotte, Hörner und Trompeten, sowie drei Posaunen, Pauken und einen Kontrabass vorsieht. Daneben gibt es mehrere Bearbeitungen von Schuberts Bruder Ferdinand, darunter eine für drei Knabenstimmen mit Orgel sowie eine für vier Männerstimmen ohne Begleitung. Verbreitung gefunden hat das populäre Werk aber durch eine Vielzahl weiterer Bearbeitungen, die häufig auf die Bedürfnisse und Möglichkeiten der Pfarrgemeinden zugeschnitten wurden.

Ihren Namen hat die Deutsche Messe daher, dass sie, anders als die meisten geistlichen Werke der Zeit, die deutsche Sprache verwendet. Dies sowie die sehr freie, assoziative und romantisierende Übertragung und Interpretation des liturgischen Textes (s. u.) führte zur anfänglichen Ablehnung des Opus durch das Wiener Erzbischöfliche Konsistorium, erlangte jedoch bald weite Popularität, insbesondere durch die Verbreitung der deutschen Bet- und Singmesse in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts.

Die Gesänge der Deutschen Messe sind im kirchlichen Alltag, insbesondere in Österreich und in Süddeutschland, bis zum heutigen Tag sehr verbreitet und populär. Einzelne Lieder aus der Messe sind im Stammteil des katholischen Gebets- und Gesangbuches Gotteslob enthalten, nämlich Wohin soll ich mich wenden (GL 145), Ehre, Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe (GL 413) und Heilig, heilig, heilig ist der Herr (GL 388); die vollständige Messe ist in mehreren Regionalanhängen des Gotteslob abgedruckt, so z. B. in der österreichischen Ausgabe unter der Nummer 711.

Musikalisch ist die Deutsche Messe von schlicht-eingängiger, diatonischer Melodik und gleichmäßiger Rhythmik geprägt; Modulation wird weitgehend vermieden, wodurch sie für jedermann leicht singbar ist. Ihre acht strophisch gehaltenen und homophon gesetzten Teile erinnern in ihrer schlicht-syllabischen Deklamation an den Gemeindegesang und verraten deutlich, dass ihr Schöpfer seinen Weltruhm insbesondere als Liedkomponist errungen hat. Dabei stützt er sich zudem eindeutig auf das Vorbild des Deutschen Hochamtes von Michael Haydn, eines Komponisten, den er sehr schätzte.
