The composer birthday celebrations continue this week with Franz Schubert, who was born on Jan. 31, 1797. For this week's Showdown, we offered up three of Schubert's masterpieces.

With a last minute surge, you chose "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen," Op. 129, D. 965 "The Shepherd on the Rock," and at noon we played the piece performed by soprano Benita Valente with clarinetist Harold Wright and pianist Rudolf Serkin.
