    L.S.
    I would like to see the film on Schubert with András Schiff, but the video has disappeared from You tube.
    That is a great disapointment for me.
    Kind regards

    • Thank you for letting me know. It is indeed a shame it isn’t there anymore. If someone else uploads it I shall repost it, but for now I have posted another Schubert documentary.

        Thank you very much!
        This is also a very good film, but I am still hoping for the András Schiff film!
        He is such a wonderful lecturer and gives one a complete new insight about music.

        I also love his lecture recitals on Beethoven. It would be wonderful to have them on DVD.

    • Fellow Schubert lover, feel sad and forlorn no more!

      The Wanderer
      a film about Schubert with András Schiff
      sung by tenor Peter Schreier
      (BBC Omnibus/Worldwide, 1997)

      is available as an mp4 video file at:

      https://metavideos.com/video/5617529/the-wanderer-a-film-about-schubert-with-andrs-schiff

      The video quality is not the best. Regardless, you may want to download it to your hard drive before it disappears as cruelly as it previously did from YouTube. I did it with:

      ExtensionFlash Video Downloader
      https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/flash-video-downloader/aiimdkdngfcipjohbjenkahhlhccpdbc/related?hl=en

      By the way, I am in no way affiliated with either of the sites posted on this message, nor am I promoting installing or downloading said software. If you are content just watching it online, by all means do so.

      Anyway, I sincerely hope you enjoy the video. Schiff’s love for Schubert is very touching and Schreier’s renditions are sweet and lyrical.

    • Sorry, I am unsure about how to leave a reply here or if these are moderated or reviewed before they appear on the page.

      Anyway,

      The Wanderer

      Hope you enjoy the video. Schiff’s love for Schubert is very touching and Schreier’s renditions are sweet and lyrical.

  2. Let’s hope someone uploads the Herr Schiff documentary again.:)

    Dear Fellow Schubert lover,

    Thanks to you I don’t feel sad and forlorn anymore!
    Two days ago I received the message with the link to the Schubert video.
    It was a great pleasure to see and hear this wonderful film again!
    For mr. Schiff is not only on the piano a great master but also in bringing to life the composer’s world and his work!
    He also made a very god film of Chopin.
    I would like to share the link with you:

    There are 6 videos.

    With kind regards,
    TKM
