||After Tchaikovsky's death, Sergey Taneyev found the composer's sketches for this piano piece, which he completed and published under the title Impromptu (Momento lirico). However, Taneyev was unaware that Tchaikovsky had completed the piece in 1892, and that it had already been published by Urbanek in Prague under its original title of Moment lyrique.
