During the Biedermeier era, people sought shelter from the disruptions and divisiveness of their times in the comfort of their private world. For Franz Schubert, his circle of friends was the first audience and addressee for his music – a group of willing, but also competent friends to whom he could introduce his compositions and who also stimulated him to produce further works. The “Schubertiaden”, musical soirees or private concerts in a cultivated yet relaxed atmosphere featuring almost exclusively professional performers, were particularly popular. Apart from Schubert’s songs, piano works and chamber music for smaller formations were often performed.
