LISZT 6 CONSOLATIONS ALFRED MASTERWORK LIBRARY
Liszt -- Six Consolations by Franz Liszt (1811-1886). Edited by Maurice Hinson. For Piano. Alfred Masterwork Edition.
Presumably inspired by Charles Sainte-Beuve's collection of poems, this set of six pieces provides a wonderful introduction to Liszt's melodic invention, mood evocation and harmonic language. The most popular of his shorter works, these pieces are successful when performed individually as well as in various combinations. This edition contains Dr. Hinson's helpful pedal markings and performance suggestions.
