A portrait in words and music Narrator Richard Pasco
He would sit at the little writing-table, bent over the music paper and the book of poems. bite his pen. drum with his lingers at the same time. tryIng things out. and continue to write easily and fluently, without many corrections, as if it had to be like that and not otherwise.'
(ALBERT STADLER writing in 1858) When Schubert died few people outside Vienna had heard of him. Much of the music for which he is now admired and loved remained unpublished, some of it even still unperformed. Years later, his ageing friends wrote their accounts of what they remembered of him.

' Ellen Terry was my great-aunt. What I remember mostly about her is her movement - she was then an old lady, deaf and rather blind and very vague in mind, but when she came on stage you really believed that she was either walking on the flagstones of Venice, or in the fields of Windsor, and she moved with extraordinary swiftness and grace, holding her skirts gathered in two hands and you got the impression of swiftness, and the people who wrote about her always said that the great line in Much Ado ........ where Beatrice like a lapwing runs close by the ground to hear our conference ... was so applicable to her.'
Producer JOHN POWELL
