String Quartet No. 2 (Schubert)

The String Quartet No. 2 (D 32) in C major was composed by Franz Schubert in 1812.


  1. Presto (C major)
  2. Andante (A minor)
  3. Menuetto (C major, with Trio in F major)
  4. Allegro con spirito (C minor – C major)

The autograph was widely scattered, and hence the first edition in the Alte Gesamt-Ausgabe only gives the first and third movements, as well as the second half of the finale in the critical report. The remainder was only discovered much later by Maurice J. E. Brown, who edited the complete work for publication.
