His friends tried to interest Goethe in the songs and in April sent a volume of 16 settings to the poet at Weimar. It produced no result.

It was completed in February but was never performed. Two movements and a half-finished scherzo were completed in October and November At the close of Schubert contracted a venereal disease , probably syphilis , and the following year was one of illness and retirement.
