Social and musical life in Biedermeier Vienna during the first decade of the 19th century created a great demand for dances which took place in the residences of wealthy citizens. With their echoes of the Austrian countryside Schubert's folk-type 'L�ndler' are dances in 3/4 time, precursors of the waltz. Composed towards the end of his life when Schubert wrote his greatest music, the sets of 16 and 17 L�ndler are notable for their melodic inventiveness. The 16 are dedicated to the ladies of Vienna and known as the 'Wiener DamenL�ndler'; while the '�cossaises' were intended for facing lines of dancers rather than couples. Daniel Lebhardt relishes the joy and 'irresistible and sometimes quite delirious' ingenuity of these jewel-like dances.
