Schubert: String Quartet in D minor, D810, 'Death and the Maiden'

Haydn's delightful Op.55 No.3 quartet is surprisingly little known, unlike Schubert's 'Death and the Maiden' - perhaps the most popular of all string quartets. The latter catches the imagination with greater intensity at each hearing. Beethoven's last major piece is a timeless treasure, and perhaps suggests the new directions his work might have taken had he lived longer.
