Originally designed for Voice and Piano, Franz Liszt's Liebesträume were published in 1850 as lieder and solo Piano works at the same time. It is the latter ones that have become famous, particularly 'Love Dream No. 3' which was to become one of the most popular pieces of the Romantic Piano literature.
Existing autograph sketches are of only little significance to the final form of the works; the complete autograph is privately owned and not accessible. This is why the new edition of Wiener Urtext Edition basically follows the first edition of 1850 with its highly reliable text but not the second publication of the original publisher which is sometimes mistaken for the first one, as the first edition of the second publication contains more mistakes than the edition of 1850.
The present edition is completed by a clear notation and convenient page turns as well as informative commentaries of the Liszt expert Christian Ubber.
