Album-Leaf 'Preludio', S164j
Album-Leaves by Liszt continue to turn up at auction or on odd pages amongst collections. The Album-Leaf in D major, S164h (in the Weimar archive) may even date from Liszt’s apprentice years – it bears the interwoven letters L and D signifying Laus Deo, which we find on many pages of his earliest works. The Album-Leaf: Preludio, S164j is similar to several others, although the particular conclusion in F sharp major is new to this version. The Album-Leaf in A flat major, S166l is also in Weimar, and produces some very original harmony in its touching efforts at counterpoint. The Album-Leaf, S167h is really a game for the musical eye – three times the same-sounding chord requires different enharmonic spelling in order to accommodate the left-hand line.
