||In autumn 1881 Svendsen was invited by his publisher to compose a romance – and completed it in two days. First published on 30 October 1881, little did he imagine that it would become his most popular work altogether. The piece appeared in almost 70 printed editions in his lifetime. Today it is among the most popular works in the romantic repertoire. The composer also arranged the work for violin and piano. Publication Hisotry
