Version History

  • Composed for voice and piano, 1842 (= 1st version, S.278/1)
Published 1843 by Schlesinger (Berlin)
Published 1844 by Schlesinger (Berlin)
  • Revised for mezzo-soprano voice and piano, 1856 (= 2nd version, S.278/2)
Published 1856 by Schlesinger (Berlin)


A major, identifying difference between versions 1 and 2: at the moment where the chalice falls into the deep, version 1 has pianistic fireworks and a simpler "ossia". Version 2 has only the ossia, apparently. (Arnold, The Liszt Companion, page 415.)
