    One of my faves. Schubert adapted another movement of this incidental music as the slow movement of his String Quartet No. 13 in A minor (which is therefore known as the “Rosamunde Quartet”):

    If you like this music, I can’t recommend this recording by Claudio Abbado and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe highly enough: http://www.amazon.com/Schubert-Chamber-Orchestra-Conductor-Mezzo-Soprano/dp/B000001GEP

    The track with the movement Mike played is the last one and the track with the music I linked to is number 7. Sample them all, though.Report

      The ability to stream music sure has empowered Classical listeners. When I find something I like I often search out and find dozens of performances of it and then screen through those for best performance and recording quality.

      When I was younger, my friends and I use to spend a sizeable portion of our income on music (which we then shared amongst ourselves — I still have all the Maxell tapes). Now we have twenty million performances for less than ten bucks a month. Amazing.Report
