Liszt – Consolation No. 3 in D-flat major – Horowitz, Piano

Liszt’s third Consolation in D-flat major is the most popular of the six Consolations and also a favorite encore piece. Its style is similar to the Chopin Nocturnes, in particular, it seems to have been inspired by Chopin’s Nocturne Op. 27 No. 2. The similarity between the two works has been interpreted as a tribute to Chopin who died in 1849, a year before the Consolations were published. – Vladimir Horowitz WikipediaVladimir Horowitz Facebook
