1.I can see three different types of composers in musical history， each of whom creates music in a somewhat different fashion.
in a … fashion ： 用…… 方式
The type that has fired public imagination most is that of the spontaneously inspired composer- the Franz Schubert type ，in other words. All composers are inspired， of course， but this type is more spontaneously inspired. Music simply wells out of him. He can‘t get it down on paper fast enough. You are almost tell this type of composer by his fruitful output. In certain months， Schubert wrote a song a day. Hugo Wolf did the same.
2.Music simply wells out of him.
well v. 喷涌，涌出
In a sense， men of this kind begin not so much with a musical theme as with a completed composition. They invariably work best in the shorter forms. It is much easier to improvise a song than it is to improvise a symphony. It isn‘t easy to be inspired in that spontaneous way for long periods at a stretch. Even Schubert was more successful in handling the shorter forms of music. The spontaneously inspired man is only one type of composer， with his own limitations.
