I found this story of Schubert's life quite well done. It gave me a much expanded, and more accurate, understanding of this man's life. Although a given listener may complain the book did not include this or that composition amongst those recordings inserted to augment the story line, I found the sampling to be good. I liked the fact that full performances, or large segments, of each piece were played, rather than just short snatches. I also liked how different actors' voices read quotes from various letters and journals that were used to support the story. Enjoyable and informative!

Really enjoyed this, learned so much in an entertaining way. Having the music alongside the narrative really enhances the experience.
Would you try another book written by Jeremy Siepmann or narrated by the narrators?
No. There was nothing new presented. It was a rehash worth little more than a Wikipedia entry
Would you ever listen to anything by Jeremy Siepmann again?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
His voice was stiff, almost pedantic and without charm
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
