Morceau en fa majeur, S695
composer
1843

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Morceau en fa majeur is always listed as unfinished, and in the sense that there is a great deal of unworked-out revision in the (untitled) manuscript, this is true. But ignoring all of the additions one can retrieve the basic original version of this very lovely piece, which was composed at Nonnenwerth in the summer of 1843. There is something faintly operatic about the melody but, unless and until someone can identify a prior source for the melody, we must presume that the theme is Liszt's.
