Schubert wrote his incidental music for Helmina von Chézy's play "Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus" and the two were first performed together in 1823. The incidental music is now better remembered than the play it was written for. This, the second ballet music, is the final piece in the suite.
If you enjoyed this piece, have comments or corrections, we'd love to hear from you.
