Born in Himmelpfortgrund in the Archduchy of Austria, Franz Peter Schubert (1797-1828), produced an immense portfolio of secular songs during his brief life. Though not widely recognized, his popularity grew greatly following his death, and ultimately resulted in him being one of the most popularly and frequently performed composers of the early 19th century.
