I don't think that Schubert actually needs a Schubertfest, his music is already having an exceptionally good year on R3, this is presumably in preparation for the Schubertfest. That's another 9 days rest I'll have from doing my survey.
Does anyone actually what planet RW is actually on? You think even the most stupid person would have learnt from the mistake of the Mozartfest, obviously RW is now totally out of control. Poor Schubert another great composer ruined by R3s idiotic dictator and his politburo.
I think these programmes give a very good insight into a composer's output. Although in some ways, I know it appears, in another front, that it could be a way of Radio 3 to do one of their economy drives?
