And Let's Not Forget the Schuberts

I had a piece yesterday for violin and piano, "The Bee" by Franz Schubert. No, not THAT Franz Schubert, the other one; the one that constantly gets lost in the shadow because he apparently only wrote one piece...namely, "The Bee!" This Franz Schubert was born in Dresden in 1808, and is sometimes referred to as "Francois Schubert" to try to avoid confusion. (It almost never works).

I'd love to learn more about FS2, and whether there are any more pieces buzzing around the apiary...anyone?
