Very attractive AMQS on an off-white 8 x 5.25 musically lined sheet with engraved borders, signed in the lower left in ink, "F. Liszt, 7 Mai 1841," with the composer adding several bars of music from an unknown piece. In fine condition, with faint foxing and soiling, and a tiny hole to the upper right edge. In 1839, Liszt embarked on his first extensive tour of Europe, a tradition continued for the following eight years. When he returned to Berlin in late 1841, the popularity of the great Hungarian composer grew to a fever pitch, and on December 27th, a performance at the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin marked the beginning of a fan frenzy that lyricist Heinrich Heine would later coin 'Lisztomania.' A highly displayable quotation dating to a period of supreme influence for Liszt.
