Album-Leaf 'Première Consolation', S171b

? 1870s

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.

Parmi les maintes feuilles d’album et cartes de visite musicales lisztiennes figure un corpus de pièces fondées sur un thème connu, le thème principal de la Première Ballade. La Feuille d’album en la bémol (Portugal) contient de petites touches harmoniques absentes des autres versions. La Feuille d’album (Première consolation) se déroule exactement comme l’ouverture de la première des Consolations, mais s’achève sur un matériau nouveau.

Unter Liszts vielen Albumblättern und musikalischen Visitenkarten findet sich eine Gruppe von Stücken, die auf einem Thema aufbauen, das uns als Hauptthema der Première Ballade geläufig ist. Das Albumblatt in As-Dur (Portugal) enthält einige harmonische Feinheiten, die in anderen Versionen nicht vorkommen. Das Albumblatt (Première Consolation). beginnt genauso wie die Eröffnung der ersten Consolation, endet aber mit neuem Material.
