Liszt improvised a “very beautiful and brilliant fantasia” based on a waltz by Soriano at the city’s Real Círculo de la Amistad, Liceo Artístico y Literario and published his Feuille Morte. Élégie d’après Mariano Soriano S 428 one year later in Paris. For years, specialists unsuccessfully tried to discover the work on which this piece was based.
