Originally for clarinet and string quartet, this beautiful Adagio has over the years been attributed to Richard Wagner. Various editions have claimed that this movement was a septet written by Wagner in Wurzburg in 1833. In 1964, however, it was discovered that the Adagio was actually the middle movement of the Clarinet Quintet Opus 23 by Heinrich Baermann, published in 1821.
