"Schubert's posthumous fame places him among the high masters," says David Dubal in this third part of his exploration of the great composer's works for the keyboard. In the years following his death, his music found greater audiences than during his lifetime. 

During this episode, you'll also hear works performed by Annie Fischer, Sergei Rachmaninoff and many others.

Reflections from the Keyboard airs Thursdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 10 pm on WQXR.
