*The String Quartet in D minor was written in 1824, just after Schubert became aware of his ruined health. It is popularly known as the "Death and the Maiden" Quartet because the second movement is adapted from the piano accompaniment to Schubert's 1817 song (or lied), "Death and the Maiden".

Ariel Dorfman's 1991 play "Death and the Maiden" and its 1994 film adaptation (directed by Roman Polanski) take their names from the quartet.
