Schubert's Der Tod und das Mädchen is without doubt the best-known string quartet ever composed. What makes this piece so special? And why do listeners want to hear it over and over again? Maybe because it's about the essence of existence. Life and death are circling around each other in the Tod and the Mädchen. For Schubert's masterpiece, there is hardly a better interpreter imaginable than the sublime Signum Quartet. This German ensemble is a specialist when it comes to Schubert. "The quartet plays transparently and animated," says Gramophone. "A top ensemble that provides heartwarming interpretations", writes OpusKlassiek.
