Mercury Ensemble, Death and the Maiden

Judith Coulter Death and the Maiden

The String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden, by Franz Schubert, is one of the pillars of the chamber music repertoire and will be the heart of this concert. This masterpiece is Schubert’s homage to death, composed in 1824 when he realized a serious illness was leading to his own untimely demise. Audiences will be moved by this powerful, evocative arrangement for string orchestra, originally recorded by Mercury in 2014.
