Haydn’s Op. 33 set of string quartets has several nicknames, the most common of which is the ‘Russian’ quartets, because Haydn dedicated the quartets to the Grand Duke Paul of Russia. No. 3 gets its own nickname from the bird-like repeated notes in the first violin part at the opening. The nickname for the Schubert work comes from the second movement, which is based on a theme from the composer’s incidental music for Rosamunde, Fürstin von Zypern (Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus), a play by Helmina von Chézy performed in Vienna in 1824.
