Années de pèlerinage I, S.160

Années de pèlerinage (Years of Pilgrimage) is a set of three suites for solo piano by Liszt. It is widely considered a masterwork and summation of Liszt's musical style. The title refers to Goethe's famous novel of self-realization, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship. Liszt clearly places the work in line with the Romantic literature of his time, prefacing most pieces with a literary passage from writers such as Schiller, Byron or Senancour.  Première année: Suisse" ("First Year: Switzerland"), S.160, was published in 1855. Composed between 1848 and 1854, most of the pieces are revisions of Album d'un voyageur: Part 1: Impressions et Poesies. Vallée d'Obermann (Obermann's Valley) was inspired by Senancour's novel of the same title, set in Switzerland, with a hero overwhelmed and confused by nature.
