The quartet known as the Rosamunde is one of Schubert’s later quartets, written in 1824. The development of his quartet writing is much in evidence here; the music for each member of the quartet is equally important and characterful. In the early quartets, most of the important melodic interest had been given to the first violin. The later quartets also have a greater structural integrity with themes. Harmonies and textures recur throughout the four movements, tying the whole work together. Both the Rosamunde and Schubert’s Trout Quintet feature examples of Schubert using references from his song catalogue in other areas of his work.
