Romance oubliée, S527bis
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Romance oubliée derives from a song—Ô pourquoi donc?—composed in 1843 and transcribed for piano as Romance in 1848. The 1880 revision, which amounts to a completely new view of old material overlaid with a mystical despair common in the extraordinary music of Liszt’s final years, was apparently foreshadowed by the present text—whose manuscript is held in the Library of Congress—where the phrases are shorter, and the coda has not yet been added.
