Pensées 'Nocturne', S168b
Beginning at the back of the N5 Sketchbook, Liszt made many small sketches for projected compositions which were never carried further. The only completed work in the final pages dates from exactly the same period as those in the collection of eight at the front of the book, and so is obviously to be considered apart. It looks as if Liszt intended to write more than one piece to go under the general title Pensées, but nothing can be made of the fragments which follow this little gem (the subtitle ‘Nocturne’ can only be deciphered with great effort) composed on 6 November 1845.
