The Fantasie in C major Op. 15 popularly known as the Wanderer Fantasy is a four-movement fantasy for solo Piano composed by Franz Schubert in 1822. The whole work is based on one single basic motive from the lied âThe Wandererâ and the four movements are played without a break. It is widely considered to be Schubert's most technically demanding composition for the Piano. Schubert himself said 'the devil may play it ' in reference to his own inability to do so properly. It is the perfect challenge for any proficient pianist and the effort will be appreciated byaudiences upon hearing this marvellous piece!Franz Schubert was an Austrian composer who was extremely prolific during his short lifetime(he died at the age of 31).
