Gaudeamus igitur – Paraphrase, S240ii
1853; second version

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The second version of Gaudeamus igitur – Paraphrase was prepared by Liszt for publication and survives in a fair copy in a copyist's hand with corrections and title-page in Liszt's hand. Unlike the first version, the revision was never published (and it is not to be confused with the later Gaudeamus igitur – Humoreske). It remains an amusing, if entirely unimportant, pièce d'occasion.
