Ferenc Liszt composed his Fantasy on themes from Mozart's two masterly operas Le nozze di Figaro and Don Giovanni by the end of 1842 or the beginning of January 1843 at the latest on the evidence that he played the piece in Berlin on 11th January 1843. The piece was not quite finished in manuscript, but the lacunae-the end of a brief transition in the closing section (bars 574-576) and the end of the work (bars 602-616)-are so insignificant that he probably tried out an improvised solution in performance. For reasons which have not come down to us Liszt never finished the manuscript and he does not seem to have played the work again.

Franz Liszt komponierte seine Fantasie uber Themen aus zwei meisterhaften Opern Mozarts, Le nozze di Figaro und Don Giovanni, spatestens gegen Ende 1842 oder Anfang Januar 1843. Das bezeugt jene Tatsache, dass er das Stuck schon am 11. Januar 1843 in Berlin spielte. Das Stuck blieb im Manuskript unbeendet, aber die Lucken - das Ende der kurzen Uberleitung am Schluss (T. 574-576) und das Ende des Werkes (T. 602-616) - sind so unbedeutend, dass er im Vortrag wahrscheinlich eine improvisierte Losung ausprobierte. Aus uns unbekannten Grunden wurde das Manuskript von Liszt nie beendet und auch scheint er das Werk nicht mehr gespielt zu haben.
