The String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden, is a piece by Franz Schubert. It was composed in 1824, after the composer suffered a serious illness and realized that he was dying. It is named for the theme of the second movement, which Schubert took from a song he wrote in 1817 of the same title. Some interpret it as Schubert's testament to death, and find that the theme of death is palpable in all four movements of the quartet.

The Busch quartet happily do not play such tricks with the Schubert score. Their Schubert is always consistent, strict and convincing. Both quartets can be played differently: apart from the comparisons mentioned above, I recommend the box set of the Amadeus quartet, including a fine D. 887 Amadeus Quartet: Haydn, Schubert, Brahms 1951-1957. But the Busch's relaxing of tempo isn't exaggerated either, and it is a small detail that will be of interest only to intellectuals for whom structural integrity has a role to play in interpreting music, if subservient to expressive concern. But the apex of the Busch's reading is their beautiful Andante un poco moto, vehement and full of pathos, a giant expressive jump from the Kolisch Quartet (who took it as a brisk march, more an Andante con moto or an Allegretto) and a reason alone to justify this version's standing in posterity.
