URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Notes scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

On p. 1: "Wagner erinnerte mich einst an die / Ähnlichkeit seines Parsifal Motivs / mit einem früher geschriebenen "Excelsior / (Einleitung zu den Glocken von Strassburg)." / Möge diese Erinnerung hiermit verblieben. / Er hat das Grosse und Hehre / in der Kunst der Jetzt-Zeit vollbracht. / F. Liszt / 22ten Mai, [18]/83. / Weimar.") - Schissel
