Célèbre mélodie hongroise, S243a
We have no way of knowing how many pieces were to be included in this set. A scribbled note above number 8 indicates a key scheme for an orchestral version, but it does not tie in with the pieces as they remain. However, another of the themes from the Magyar Dalok (from No 11), also known to us from its appearance in Rapsodie hongroise No VI, was issued much later in a version prepared for Francis Planté, entitled Célèbre mélodie hongroise, with a new ending, and a few little alterations en route. This piece, too, is not known to the old catalogues.
