Album-Leaf 'Andantino in A flat major', S166p
The Album-Leaf in A flat major S166p and the Album-Leaf in G major S166q came to light at an auction in 2004, where the present writer managed to copy them before they were sold, in the case of the A flat piece not to surface since, whereas the G major piece is now in the possession of the Istituto Liszt in Bologna. The A flat piece was the only music in a private album, otherwise empty, the second was on a small folio enclosed within the first, and alongside a loose programme of a Liszt recital in Kiev in February 1847. The A flat piece is very similar to the middle section of the second of the Glanes de Woronince (see volume 27), and is upon the same melody that Chopin used in the song The Maiden’s Wish, which was itself later transcribed by Liszt (see volume 5).
