Misc. Notes:

scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

Misc. Comments

  • Grove Music lists this as a "Humoreske, Zur Feier des hundertjährigen Jubiläums der Akademischen Konzerte zu Jena 1870", for "solo vv ad lib, male/mixed chorus, orch".
  • Kalmus, on the other hand says "optional mx choir" and doesn't mention solo voices.
  • According to Ben Arnold, in The Liszt Companion (p.397), Liszt composed the song for "either mixed chorus or men's chorus, soloists, and orchestra . . . Liszt composed the work to include cuts and an alternate ending so that, in the event a chorus is not present, the piece could be performed with orchestra alone. Indeed, Gaudeamus igitur is primarily an orchestral piece with a choral section, rather than a work that centers around a chorus."
