Brief note by Lindsay Pell, Senior Producer, Radio 3:
With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life.  Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers, Schubert, in the 125th anniversary year of his birth.  When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completion of his musi and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC 3 will unravel the spirit of this prolific composer.
