Franz Liszt
Consolation: Lento placido
in D-flat Major, S . 172 No. 3

This dreamy, sophisticated work may have been written as Liszt's tribute to Chopin. The smooth broken-chord accompaniment and the song-like narrative are reminiscent of the latter's Nocturnes.

Background

Liszt composed two versions of the “Consolations,” the first between 1844 and 1849 and the second within a year of the first’s completion. In the second version he replaced no. 3, a precursor to the first Hungarian Rhapsody, with a piece in the style of a nocturne by Chopin, who had died the year before. Shortly before his death, Liszt re-scored this piece to include markings for Steinway’s new sostenuto pedal.
