Misc. Comments

List of Compositions Featuring the Cello


The Quintet was to be Schubert’s last completed work. In mid-October of 1828 – just a few weeks after having completed the Quintet – Schubert’s appetite disappeared. Weakened by tertiary syphilis and the toxic, mercury-based medications he was taking for the syphilis, Schubert took to his bed with a high, persistent fever, almost certainly caused by a bacterial typhoid infection. Schubert died at three o’clock in the afternoon on November 19, 1828. The String Quintet in C Major – scored for two violins, a viola, and two ‘cellos – is among the handful of greatest chamber works ever composed. (That is not an opinion; that is a fact.)
