From Wikipedia:-
The Rosamunde incidental music Op. 26 (D. 797) was composed by Franz Schubert for an 1823 play by Helmina von Chézy. The full name of that play was Rosamunde, Fürstin von Zypern ("Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus"). Schubert's music is scored for soprano, chorus, and orchestra. The play, it seems, was a failure and has been permanently lost, but the music remains (rescued in 1867 by George Grove and Arthur Sullivan), and some of its excerpts remain among Schubert's most famous pieces.
Excerpts from the Rosamunde music are frequently played, but the complete score, lasting a full hour, is seldom heard. It has been recorded several times, notably by Kurt Masur and Claudio Abbado.

Franz Peter Schubert (January 31, 1797 – November 19, 1828) was an Austrian composer.
Although he died at an early age, Schubert was tremendously prolific. He wrote some 600 Lieder, nine symphonies (including the famous "Unfinished Symphony"), liturgical music, operas, some incidental music, and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Appreciation of his music during his lifetime was limited, but interest in Schubert's work increased dramatically in the decades following his death at the age of 31. Franz Liszt, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Felix Mendelssohn, among others, discovered and championed his works in the 19th Century. Today, Schubert is admired as one of the leading exponents of the early Romantic era in music and he remains one of the most frequently performed composers.
