Up 16. 4th of Schubert's 6 entries.

Just after he wrote Fly Me to the Moon, Schubert wrote his Impromptu No. 3. Absolute nonsense, of course. Although if you listen to the chords of Schubert's Impromptu No. 2, you'll hear that they follow the same progression admittedly a fairly common one as those from the classic 1950s song. They were both part of a set of four Impromptus written just a year before Schubert died.
