Program Notes on Will-o-the-Wisp, Op. 140, No. 15 by Gurlitt :

This whimsical work entitled Will-o-the-Wisp is the fifteenth of twenty short piano pieces in the Album for the Young, Op. 140 by Cornelius Gurlitt.

Its original title (in German) is Irrlichter.

It can be played by intermediate-level piano students.

The Will-o-the-Wisp refers to the ghostly lights sometimes seen at night or twilight, often over bogs. It looks like a flickering lamp, and is sometimes said to recede if approached.

In many folk cultures, the will-o-the-wisps are held to be mischievous spirits of the dead or other supernatural beings attempting to lead travellers astray.
