C&L's Late Nite Music Club Wishes A Happy Birthday To Schubert

Happy birthday, Justin Timberlake. I'm sure someone would like to hear one of your songs on the occasion of your 26th birthday.

But not me.

It's also Franz Schubert's birthday; he was born in 1797 (and died in 1828). Unlike Justin, Schubert's work went unrecognized and unrewarded while he lived. In fact, he lived and died in poverty, a music teacher to the children of a Hungarian aristocrat. Justin, on the other hand... well, you know. Anyway, you think Schubert didn't rock? Watch an episode or two of the historic British documentary about a concert of his most famous work, "The Trout" Quintet, by a pick up team of legendary classical superstars, Itzhak Perlman, Daniel Barenboim, Jacqueline Du Pré, Zubin Mehta and Pinchas Zukerman.
