Waltz, S209a
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Liszt made three trips to the British Isles: in 1826, 1840/41, and 1886. The very day he arrived in 1840 he penned (and dated, without entitling it) the Waltz in E flat, which is effectively an album-leaf made from the second theme of the Grande Valse de bravoure, but in a version part-way between the two published versions of the whole work. In this form there is the added attraction of finishing in quite the wrong key. The coda of the same waltz supplied the material for the slight Galop de Bal.
