This chapter presents some final thoughts from the author. It argues that all three of the central characters of this book — Schubert, Schumann, and Brahms — contributed in varying degrees to the art of storytelling. In doing so, they made their mark on a practice that, according to Walter Benjamin, entered a period of decline in the 19th century and was clearly in danger of coming to an end in the 20th century.

Keywords: Brahms; Schumann; Schubert; music; storytelling
