Franz Liszt: Consolations

The six Consolations were inspired by a set of poems of the same name by the French author and literary critic Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve.
They were composed in 1849-1850, in the beginning of Lisztís most productive period, when he had only recently abandoned the concert stage, persuaded by his lover Carolyne zu Sayn-Wittgenstein to concentrate on composition.
The most well-known piece in the set is No. 3, clearly inspired by the Nocturnes of Chopin, who had died in October 1849.

xx Liszt Consolations
November 06, 2007, 02:39:03 PM by redbaron

I'm looking for some information on the Liszt Consolations in general and No 4 in particular. A trawl through the internet has proved relatively fruitless and the nice shiny Schirmer edition I've just purchased doesn't contain any information on them either. When I say information I mean date of composition, any related stories, meanings behind the music inspiration, that  kind of thing.

Thanks
