Liszt must have been particularly fond of the Romance: Lyubila ya (‘I love you’) by Michael Wielhorsky (1788–1856) since he made two published versions of it for solo piano (see volumes 40 and 35) as well as two intermediate MS versions and an Album-Leaf. They are all worth hearing, and the tune itself is quite haunting.
