Across the city, concert parties called Schubertiaden sprung up in the homes of wealthy residents. By late , however, Schubert encountered another difficult period. His financial needs going unmet, and his friendships increasingly strained, Schubert's life was further darkened when he became severely sick—historians believe he almost certainly contracted syphilis.
And yet, Schubert continued to produce at a prolific rate. None of the finished pieces, however, brought him the fortune he deserved or so greatly needed.
Battling health problems, Schubert again turned to music for escape. For a time, Schubert, almost constantly penniless, returned to teaching. In , Schubert applied for the job of deputy musical director at the Stadtkonvikt. While certainly a top candidate, he failed to land the job. Still, his fortunes during this period began to improve.
His impressive musical output continued, and his popularity in Vienna increased. He was even in negotiations with four different publishers. This work included the first 12 songs of the "Winterreise," as well as the "Piano Sonata in C Minor" and two piano solos, "Impromptus" and "Moments Musicaux. In , the last year of his life, Schubert, though obviously ill, stayed committed to his craft.
It was during this time that he produced what is quite possibly his greatest piano duet, "Fantasy in F Minor.

Oddly enough, Schubert's first and final public concert took place on March 26, , and it proved successful enough that it allowed the great composer to finally buy himself a piano. Exhausted, and with his health continuing to deteriorate, Schubert moved in with his brother, Ferdinand.
He died on November 19, , in Vienna, Austria.
It was only after Schubert's passing that his musical genius received the kind of recognition it deserved. His talent lay in is ability to adapt to almost any kind of musical form. His vocal contributions, more than in all, were written for male and female voices, as well as mixed voices. Like the poets whose work he wrote his music around, Schubert was an unrivaled master of lyrical beauty. It is no secret that Schubert adored Beethoven—he was awed by him, to the point that he was too timid to even introduce himself to the musical giant when the two passed one another on the streets of Vienna.
But it is far from a stretch to mention these two musical giants in the same sentence. Schubert produced masterful works with rich harmonies and legendary melodies for a variety of genres, and his influence proved considerable with later composers like Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Hugo Wolf.
And for some musical historians, his much praised "Ninth Symphony" opened the way for other greats like Anton Bruckner and Gustav Mahler.
In , a memorial to Schubert was constructed in the Stadtpark in Vienna. In , his grave, along with Beethoven's, was relocated to Zentralfriedhof, the Viennese cemetery that is among the largest in the world.
