Prière et Berceuse de La muette de Portici d'Auber, S387

composer
after 1846?
composer
1828; La muette de Portici

 
The three pieces remain in manuscript. Although described as ‘three’ in all the catalogues, there are really only two pieces, but the first has two parts to it, preceded by a short introduction. Actually Liszt crossed out the first part, so it is possible that he intended to publish just the introduction and the Berceuse which forms the second part. (The origin of the first part is a mystery at present—it is certainly not in Masaniello, and in any case Liszt left the whole manuscript untitled.)
