schubert's most famous string quartet

Schubert’s 'Death & the Maiden' String Quartet (No. 14)

Apart from being famous, the music is on its own absolutely gorgeous…and any string player should know it. (including its impossibly fast finale coda…hahahah). You can listen to it in its entirety below performed by the Takacs Quartet.

Along with the Takacs Quartet recording (heard above), I also listed my favorite recording of it by the Hagen Quartett.
