I think that a great work of art should naturally be influential

How influential was Schubert's Unfinished Symphony? Or his D960 Piano Sonata?

It's like those murals in Pompeii: no fricking influence at all, none, bupkis,  nada, for 1700 years.

Alfred Brendel playing D960 is what got me listening to classical music on a regular basis. I heard it in a record store in Washington, DC, in January, 1987, just after buying my first CD player, and I just had to have it. The store was having a sale: 3 CDs on DG-Philips-Decca/London for $25, so I also bought Beethoven's 9th (HvK, 1977) and Brendel's Mozart PCs 23 & 27. And I have never stopped listening to classical music.
