Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This album leaf was not entitled by Liszt but is a simple transcription of one of his songs, Gestorben war ich, later to become widely known in the version as the second of the Liebesträume (recorded in Volume 19). There is a third, also very simple, version of the piece as one of the Klavierstücke dedicated to the Baroness von Meyendorff (recorded in Volume 11).
