The Theresa Grob Album

Pieces in this collection

Theresa Grob
Heinrich Hollpein, c1835  Vienna Museum

This collection of songs (all but one, D 512) in Schubert’s handwriting was probably given to Heinrich Grob, the brother of Therese Grob (1798 – 1875) in November 1816. Scholars continue to debate the suggestion that Schubert prepared the collection for Therese in the hope of marrying her. The songs included were:

D 445Edone
