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.
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition is in the public domain because it was published at least 25 years ago for most of the EU (20 years ago in Italy, 30 years ago in Poland) over 25 years ago for the former USSR. 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.

Version History

  • Arranged for solo piano, 1847, from six earlier songs for voice and piano
Published 1987 by Editio Musica Budapest (Budapest)

Not to be confused with "Buch der Lieder. Band II" which in 1844 was the title applied to the original publication of 5 of these songs, omitting Gastibelza (also: titled Poésies lyriques de V. Hugo) when they were published by Schlesinger of Berlin. (Liszt's letters to Schlesinger in 1844, preserved in the US Library of Congress, support the 1844 date if not even perhaps an earlier 1843 date- if the songs may perhaps have been composed a little earlier- rather than the 1849 date "suggested" by HMB where a reissue may be indicated.)
