Reznicek composed his opera "Till Eulenspiegel" between August 1898 and September 1900. This opera was premiered by Felix mottel at Karlsruhe in 1902. Between September and December 1900 Reznicek also wrote the Symphonic Poem "Wie Till Eulenspegel lebte". This was intended as an Intermezzo betwwen the 2nd act of "Till Eulenspiegel" and the 3rd act (Postludium), but omitted in the premiere of 1902 and any furthe representions of the opera. It lacks also in the Piano-vocal-Score of the opera. Later Reznicek considered "Wie Till Eulenspiegel lebte" as an independent composition, suitable also for concert performances.
