"There can never be enough Franz Peter Schubert," says host David Dubal, who continues to explore the composer's work for the keyboard in this week's episode. In this show, you'll hear a number of works the composer wrote toward the end of his short life, many of them through subsequent transcriptions by Franz Liszt.

The pianists featured in the episode include Vladimir Horowitz, Murray Perahia, Claudio Arrau and many others.

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