The Schubertian Journal Articles

The Schubertian is the journal of SIUK. It is published four times a year, with the latest issue being number 107 in July 2020. Note that volumes 1-12 of the Journal were simply known as The Schubert Institute (UK) Newsletter. In the very early issues of the journal, it was common for articles to appear in translation or a translated précis from the original in Schubert durch die Brille, the journal of the Internationales Franz Schubert Institut (IFSI). For such articles we list the author of the original article, and not the translator or précis writer.
