The Consolations are a set of six solo piano works composed by Franz Liszt. The compositions take the musical style of Nocturnes with each having its own distinctive style. Each Consolation is composed in either the key of E major or D-flat major. E major is a key regularly used by Liszt for religious themes.
There exist two versions of the Consolations. The first version (S.171a) was composed by Liszt between 1844 and 1849, and the second version (S.172) was composed between 1849 and 1850. The first version of his Consolations were published in 1992 by G. Henle Verlag. The second version was first published in 1850 by Breitkopf & Härtel and contains the renowned third Consolation.
