The two editions I have (B&H and Cortot) each have G, not G#.

G or G#?
Thanks.
I play g#. I think, it's obviously a typo.
Best regards, Ferruccio

I completely agree with Busoni's great grandson and plead for g sharp.
ALL editions have g natural; but in my copy of Klindworth's edition, the former owner wrote "gis" in pencil!

The "theme" in question always starts with a characteristic minor second. See bars 108, 112, 130, 293 and 311.
So it's not a case of "variatio delectat", imho.

P.S. The Soviet edition (ed. by Milstein a.o.) adds a sharp in brackets and refers to the text commentary...
which I could not find online and which I would not be able to read!

Liszt-Tausig-Faust symphony (ms).pdf
From the Liszt Memorial Museum, the manuscript of Tausig's transcription of the Faust symphony.
Unfortunately, the score is hardly readable and gives only a glimpse of Tausig's art of transcription.
To my knowledge, the other transcriptions of this masterwork are by A. Stradal (a little awkward for my taste) and S. Blet (french pianist and composer, his transcription, made in 1994, is very pianistic. It is unfortunately out of print and has never been recorded).
