Liszt’s Consolations are among his easier works, but they are still challenging for most pianists. James L. King III has taken the theme from the famous Consolation No. 3, transposed it from Db major to C major and created a version that is on the easy side of intermediate, ready for those who enjoy this beautiful melody.
Key: C Major
Mood: melancholy, nostalgic
Pedagogy: triplets, sixteenth notes, pedal
