The Eight Ländler in B-Flat, D. 378 constitute a delightful set of dance pieces for solo piano written by the 19 year-old Franz Peter Schubert. Ländler, German dances, ecossaises, polonaises, minuets, galops, and waltzes comprised a substantial portion of Schubert’s piano works. This particular set is accessible to the intermediate level player and represents a country dance style that influenced the development of the waltz, a dance form that became wildly popular in the 19th century.
