The greatest artist the West produced, following maybe Shakespeare, died this week in 1827 and his funeral, drawing massive crowds for the time in Vienna, was held three days later. Here's the famous funeral oration. Schubert carried a torch and was dead not many months later (and they are now buried nearly side-by-side). My book with Kerry Candaele here. Below, one of his last pieces--still ahead of its time, even if written in 2013. Below that, trailer for Kerry's new film, for which I serve as co-producer.
