About :The String Quartet in D minor, D. 810, known as 'The Maiden and Death', written by Franz Schubert in 1824, is the fourteenth for this chamber ensemble. The name of the quartet comes from the second movement, the andante, which is a series of five variations on the theme from his lied D. 531, Der Tod und das Mädchen as the young girl (das Mädchen) approaches.
It is almost contemporary with his Quartet in A minor 'Rosamunde', but was not completed until two years later. It was first published in 1831, three years after the composer's untimely death.
