Schubert: Death and the Maiden
Schubert composed this powerfully dramatic work in March 1824. Its nickname springs from his using material from his song Death and the Maiden as the basis for the variations which make up the second movement. He was recovering from a serious bout of ill health while writing it, which may go some way toward explaining his use in it of a theme that he associated with death. This does not guarantee that death was a thing of undiluted terror for him. He may have held to the belief, common to his time and place, and expressed in the poem by Matthias Claudius that he set in Death and the Maiden, that death might also be a friend, one who grants release from earthly suffering.
