This international and interdisciplinary conference seeks fresh perspectives on these issues. In particular, we invite contributions on the following topics:

definitions of Schubert’s late style (ontology versus chronology; critique versus synthesis);
text setting in the late songs;
Schubert’s late style and Schubert’s maturity;
problems in the reception of Schubert’s late music;
contradictions in the biographical scholarship of Schubert’s final years;
issues in the theory of form;
topic, affect and expression in the late music;
issues of tonal strategy;
