Franz Liszt arranged numerous works by other composers for his instrument, in particular excerpts from the operas by his friend and son-in-law Richard Wagner. He turned to "The Flying Dutchman" twice: alongside Senta's ballad he also made a brilliant transposition of the spinning chorus ("Summ and brumm, du gutes Rädchen") from Act 2 for the piano. His "Spinning Song" bubbles over with virtuosic brilliance and has to this day remained one of his best-loved transcriptions. When preparingthis Urtext edition, Henle was able to consult the autograph score in Weimar and the composer's own revisions in the archives of the publisher Breitkopf & Härtel.
