Can anybody explain this mystery to me? I was looking at the sheet music for Liszt's 3rd Mephisto Waltz, and I noticed that it was in common time!! How is it even a waltz? I thought it was bad enough that none of the Mephisto Waltzes sound like waltzes, but they don't even have the correct time signature too? Why didn't he just call them Mephisto Caprices?
