Austrian composer Franz Schubert died in 1828 at the age of 31, long before anyone could fully recognize his genius for pieces like “Ave Maria.”

In this week’s Here & Now DJ Session, host Jeremy Hobson talks with David Rutherford, classical music host at Colorado Public Radio, about some of Schubert’s notable works.
