Schubert's "incomparable" final three piano sonatas, D958-960, were among the "rich array of ambitious works that included the songs posthumously published as Schwanengesang (D957, August and October), ... the String Quintet in C major (D956, September–October) and Der Hirt auf dem Felsen (D965, October) for voice, clarinet and piano."
