Album-Leaf 'Première Consolation', S171b
? 1870s

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Among Liszt's many album-leaves and musical visiting cards are a group of pieces based on a theme familiar to us as the principal theme of the Première Ballade. The Album-Leaf in A flat (Portugal) contains some small harmonic touches not found in other versions. The Album-Leaf (Première Consolation) proceeds exactly as the opening of the first of the Consolations, but concludes with new material.
