I don't think Vienna String Quartet is particularly collectible or valuable. But since the ROSAMUNDE RONDO FOR VIOLIN AND STRINGS is not widely recorded, your record may have some clout. It certainly will sound great, too. You've got some great music there with a Schubert String Quartet.

TRIVIA: Schubert was Beethoven's favourite composer.

Here is a blurb about the ROSAMUNDE piece taken from a review of a Fritz Kreisler compilation:

Schubert's music for the unsuccessful play Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus, has allowed the work a spurious and nominal survival. Kreisler transcribed not the well known dactylic theme that the composer also used in an impromptu and in his A Minor String Quartet, but an equally popular melody from the ballet music for the play.

Not very much to go on from that review, but you can see that it is not a popular piece. Kreisler was a genius, a jack-of-all-trades and master-of-many.
