Ave Marie by Franz Schubert

Ave Marie (theme) by Franz Schubert (1797 – 1828)

Although he died at an early age, Schubert was tremendously prolific. He wrote some 600 Lieder, nine symphonies (including the famous “Unfinished Symphony”), liturgical music, operas, some incidental music, and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Appreciation of his music during his lifetime was limited, but interest in Schubert’s work increased dramatically in the decades following his death at the age of 31


Notes
Slowly, in 2. Time Signature: 6/8. Key: C major. A couple of barred chords. Very emotional song so put some feelings to your playing. Hold bass note throughout measure.

Bar[29]-[33] I added my own right hand fingering to the tab. I urge you to explore this. What’s comfortable for me, may not be necessary so for you : )
