Including at 1130, the Schubert Essay. Schubert was described as the "musician who also seemed a magician" in appealing to so many. But attempts to explain both his achievements and mood swings through theory, often fall short of explanation. The writer, philosopher and retired medical doctor Raymond Tallis re examines the neurological and psychological evidence of a composer who increasingly meditated on the darker side of the human psyche and human relationships.

Including at 11.30pm The Schubert Essay. Schubert idolised Beethoven: he dedicated his work to him, was torch-bearer at his funeral and requested to be buried next to him in the Währinger Ortsfriedhof. Even though they lived in the same city for most of their lives, sources are unreliable when it comes to how many times they actually met, and the conversations they had are fable. So as part of The Spirit of Schubert, this essay imagines what might have happened when Schubert met his hero.

Including at 11.30pm The Schubert Essay: Romance proved difficult for Schubert - he stood barely five feet tall, with a long oval face and a deeply cleft chin. In turning to the streets of 19th century Vienna, "a night in the arms of Venus lead to a lifetime on Mercury" Whilst uncertainty exists about the cause of Schubert's death from syphilis, what do his attempts at mercury remedies reveal about his final few years? The medical historian and author of Romanticism and the Sciences Andrew Cunningham, examines The UnRomantic death of the mercurial Schubert.
