Albert Stadler

born: 1794
died: 1888
country: Germany

Albert Stadler, like Spaun, Kenner, and Senn, was a fellow student of Schubert's at the Imperial Seminary. He was extremely close to the composer in the early years, and was in the habit of making copies of all Schubert's work. Stadler was himself something of a composer. Like Spaun, he made his living as a lawyer and went to work in Linz in 1821, the same year that Spaun was also `exiled' from Vienna to that provincial capital. Schubert and Stadler were reunited in the summers of 1819 and 1825 when the composer went on holiday to Upper Austria. There are only two Stadler settings by Schubert.
