Klavierstück, S189b
composer
in D flat major

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The theme which is immediately recognisable as the opening of the Ballade No 1 served Liszt for several album-leaves, some of which, clearly given as private gifts, are absolutely identical to each other. The two Klavierstücke represent the differing texts available, the D flat version being in the same key as the Ballade, and the A flat version being numbered 2 to distinguish it from the completely different piano piece in A flat which shares the same number in the Searle catalogue (recorded in Volume 2 of the present series).
