Four hands, one heart. ‘In Upper Austria, I find my compositions everywhere, especially in the monasteries of Sankt Florian and Kremsmünster, where with the help of a decent pianist I performed my four-hand variations and marches with great success.’ So wrote Franz Schubert in 1825, evoking the popular nineteenth-century genre that publishers were always pestering him to write. But the Viennese composer went much further than the traditional German dances and sets of variations, as is shown by the overwhelming Fantasie in F minor, one of the tragic masterpieces of his last year. Quatre mains, un cœur. “En Haute-Autriche, je trouve partout mes compositions, en particulier dans les monastères de Saint-Florian et de Kremsmünster, où avec l’aide d’un brave pianiste, j’ai joué non sans succès mes variations et marches à quatre mains.” Ainsi écrit Franz Schubert en 1825, évoquant ce genre, si prisé au XIXe siècle, que les éditeurs lui réclamaient sans cesse. Le compositeur viennois va cependant beaucoup plus loin que la convivialité traditionnelle des danses allemandes et autres variations, comme le montre la bouleversante Fantaisie en fa mineur, l’un des chefs-d’œuvre tragiques de sa dernière année. Vier Hände, ein Herz. „In Oberösterreich finde ich allenthalben meine Compositionen, besonders in den Klöstern Florian und Kremsmünster, wo ich mit Beihilfe eines braven Clavierspielers meine vierhändigen Variationen und Märsche mit günstigem Erfolge producirte.“ Das schreibt Schubert im Jahre 1825 und beschwört damit jenes im 19. Jahrhundert so populäre Genre herauf, das die Musikverleger ihn immer wieder zu schreiben baten. Aber der Wiener Komponist ging weit über die traditionelle Gefälligkeit der deutschen Tänze und anderer Variationen hinaus, wie es die aufwühlende Phantasie in f-Moll, eines der tragischen Meisterwerke seiner letzten Jahre, deutlich zeigt.
