Notes

 

An incomplete transcription or original of something very close to the opening of the scherzo of the First Symphony. The handwriting and paper suggest an early date, perhaps even before 1885, when some preliminary sketching of the Symphony may have occurred. The material has some connection with the early song Maitanz im Grünen (March 1880; later reworked as 'Hans und Grete' in the Lieder und Gesänge).
