The little album-leaf version of Die Nebensonnen
turned up recently in Prague. The single page of manuscript is undated, and it has never been published. It consists of just the first paragraph of the Schubert song but unlike the published transcription in the twelve songs from Winterreise
is set in Schubert’s original key of A major. Slight divergencies from Schubert’s melody may indicate that Liszt was writing from memory at the time.
