Album-Leaf 'Andantino in E flat major' [incomplete], S163a/2
composer
1828

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Liszt was particularly fond of one or two of his Album-Leaves and would write and write them again as little dedications for many of his friends and admirers over his long career. The circumstances of their composition is usually not known, and many of them are in anonymous private hands and cannot be seen, but they are known from their publication in facsimile in various auctioneers' catalogues. It is for this reason that we lack the last fifteen bars from the verso of the manuscript of the early Andantino in E flat, only the recto of which was published. The present whereabouts of the manuscript are unknown, and this musical material is known only from this leaf.
