Fantasia in C Major D.760 is a large-scale piano work created by Schubert. From the perspective of the creation background, musical structure and playing experience, this paper will analyze the rhythm, melody lines, touch keys, hand support, running and other issues combined with musical examples. This study can not only enrich the advance theory of the performance of Schubert's works, but also help other players to have a further understanding of Schubert's piano works and provide more enlightenment.
