LISZT MUSIC MANUSCRIPTS IN PARIS
A Preliminary Survey

The Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris (F-Pn), owns one of the largest and most important public collections of Liszt music manuscripts in the world. This collection, however, has never previously been described in print. Published catalogs exist for several other important collections: those, for instance, of the National Szèchènyi Library, Budapest; and the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.1 At least one partial catalog of the collection owned by the Goethe-und Schiller-Archiv, Weimar, has appeared in print,2 and the Archiv itself owns several lengthy handwritten catalogs of its Liszt holdings.3 Information about a number of Weimar manuscripts may also be found in the works lists of Peter Raabe, Humphrey Searle, and several other scholars.4 Individual studies of a few Budapest, Washington, and Weimar manuscripts have also appeared in the periodical literature.5 Among more specialized documentary studies

1 See, for example, Mária Eckhardt, Liszt's Music Manuscripts in the National Széchényi
Library (Budapest: Akadémiai Kiadó, 1986); and Elizabeth H. Auman et al., The Music
Manuscripts, First Editions, and Correspondence of Franz Liszt (1811-1886) in the
Collections of the Music Division, Library of Congress (Washington, D.C: Library of
Congress, 1991). Auman's catalog supercedes Edward N. Waters, Liszt Holographs in
the Library of Congress (Washington, D.C: Library of Congress, 1979). Additional
information about Washington manuscripts, especially about their provenances, may be
found in issues of the Library of Congress bulletins and quarterlies published irregularly
since the 1930s. These last sources of information can often be consulted systematically
only at the Library itself.

Liszt Society 13 (1982), pp. 3-24. This article was reprinted in Liszt Saeculum 32 (1983),
pp. 3-23.

3 The handwritten Goethe-und Schiller-Archiv catalogs were compiled in part by Peter
Raabe during his tenure as curator. Additional information has been added to these large,
bound volumes by other individuals.

4 See R and S. The latter, containing corrections by Sharon Winklhofer, represents a
revised version of the catalog published by Searle in The New Grove Dictionary of Music
and Musicians, ed. Stanley Sadie (London: Macmillan, 1980), Volume XI, pp. 263-316.
The forthcoming catalog of Liszt's works as prepared by Leslie Howard and Michael
Short will be based in large part on the Searle/Winklhofer works list. See pp. 75-99 of the
present volume.

der Széchényi Nationalbibliothek, Budapest,” Studia Musicologica 17 (1975), pp. 347-
405; Linda Claus, “An Aspect of Liszt's Late Style: The Composer's Revisions for
