Beethoven van Ludwig – String Quartet in C-sharp minor, Op. 131
(Schubert’s last wish)
On his deathbed Schubert Franz is said to have requested a command performance of Beethoven’s C sharp minor String Quartet, op.131, which was duly given by Karl Holz and others (the violinist Holz was a mutual friend of the two composers), and in his dying delirium Schubert was thought to be asking obliquely to be buried beside Beethoven at the cemetery in Währing. His father took pains to ensure that this wish was granted.
