Tune of the Day: Consolation
from Köhler's “25 Romantic Studies”
This étude is taken from Ernesto Köhler's 25 Romantic Studies, Op. 66. It starts off with a melancholic D-minor theme to be played expressively and “with full voice” (piena voce). The subsequent passage is marked con rassegnazione, i.e. “with resignation”. Some technical difficulty is then brought in by the sixteenth-note runs starting at measure 20.
