Notes & Reviews:

A pillar of chamber music repertoire, Schubert's String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden, was written in 1824 after Schubert suffered through a series of debilitating illnesses and realized that he was dying. It is the composer's testament to death, and is named for the theme of the second movement which was taken from an 1817 publication of the same title. "With the wonderful Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra we are presently exploring Schubert's quartet 'Death and the maiden.' Of course we have to include Schubert's earlier song with the same title on the poem of Matthias Claudius. This song belongs to the medieval tradition of the dance of death. Therefore we also play "Toden Tanz" (with poor me dancing), an ancient death dance written up by the German organ player August Norminger... we also play one of Dowland's Pavans from "Seven Teares." Add to this "Moro lasso"... In between we also refresh our ears with other unsettling works by modern composers... " (Patricia Kopatchinskaja) The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The orchestra presents more than 130 concerts and educational programs annually across the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. They are regularly heard on "Performance Today" and SymphonyCast, American Public Media's nationally syndicated radio programs.
