Composers telling us stories. Franz Schubert died asking for more of James Fenimore Cooper’s novels like The Last of the Mohicans. We can only imagine that Schubert was looking for more musical inspiration from stories of forbidden love caught in the crosshairs of the French and Indian War. The next weeks will not feature just tone poems, operas, or Shakespeare, but music inspired by all sorts of poems and books.
