"String Quartet #13 In A Minor, Op. 29/1, D 804, "Rosamunde" - 3. Menuetto: Allegretto" By Composer Franz Peter Schubert, Performed By The Caspar Da Salo Quintet

Schubert wrote this quartet between February and March 1824 and dedicated it to Ignaz Schuppanzigh, a violinist and friend of Beethoven who had been the leader of Count Razumovsky’s private string quartet until it was dissolved after the Palais Rasumofsky burnt down in 1814. Though the count continued to pay his salary, Schuppanzigh soon formed a new quartet for public performances, and it was this ensemble that first performed Rosamunde on 14 March 1824. Rosamunde remained the only string quartet by Schubert to be performed during the composer’s lifetime.

“Ah, time fades away from me with wet wings on rocking waves. Time flies on shimmering wings, tomorrow just like yesterday and today. Until I myself on more highly radiant wings flee from the changing time.”

Schubert composed this song 1823 to a poem Friedrich Leopold Graf zu Stolberg-Stolberg had written in 1782: “Lied auf dem Wasser zu singen.” The recording is from the soundtrack of the Japanese movie Battle Royale, 2000.

Franz Schubert : Winterreise, „Das Wirtshaus“ — Brigitte Fassbaender, Aribert Reimann.

Auf einen Totenacker hat mich mein Weg gebracht;
Allhier will ich einkehren, hab’ ich bei mir gedacht.
Ihr grünen Totenkränze könnt wohl die Zeichen sein,
Die müde Wand’rer laden ins kühle Wirtshaus ein.

Sind denn in diesem Hause die Kammern all’ besetzt?
Bin matt zum Niedersinken, bin tödlich schwer verletzt.
O unbarmherz’ge Schenke, doch weisest du mich ab?
Nun weiter denn, nur weiter, mein treuer Wanderstab!
