These six little piano pieces are among Liszt's best-known works and are comparatively easy to play – a rarity amongst the composer's often eccentric and virtuosic works. in 1844, Liszt had already begun work on the cycle that was only published in 1850. Although he had the pieces engraved, this version was never actually printed. He replaced No. 3, a precursor to the first Hungarian Rhapsody, with a piece in the style of a nocturne by Chopin (it can occasionally be heard as an encore at piano recitals), and he simplified the remaining numbers. in the second part of this edition, Henle has reproduced the complete early version for the first time.
