Schubert

Listen to Andras Schiff and Yuuko Shiokawa play the Fantasy for Violin and Piano, Op posth 159 by Franz Schubert, born this day in 1797.

Overflowing with gorgeous melodies, not just difficult but awkward to play for both pianist and violinist, sublime genius, and (if truth be told) other passages that just seem like a lot of notes.  That’s Schubert.
