In three languages, the title means Dark Star: Sinister, Disastrous. Liszt 's last period contains several works which are among the most advanced and radical music anyone had written to that point, not excluding that of Liszt 's son-in-law, Richard Wagner. The dissonances of this darkly glittering piece are remarkable. An unwary listener would be apt to place them among the works of the twentieth century's most important innovators. The dissonances are practically unresolved; the tension is continuous.

Before Debussy , Liszt employs the whole tone scale harmonically, to produce a series of augmented triads. Both the scale and this sort of harmony open many possibilities. At the end, organ-like sonorities portray the prayers of a terrified humanity.

Unstern! Sinistre, disastro, for piano, S. 208 (LW A312)

The radical change Franz Liszt 's compositional style underwent in the last 20 years of his life was unprecedented in Western classical music. Beethoven 's own three periods of composition are monolithic and united. Liszt's, by comparison, seem deconstructivist. Replacing pages which in Liszt's earlier compositions had been thick with notes and virtuoso passages was a starkness where every note and rest was carefully weighed and calculated, while the works themselves become more experimental harmonically and formally. However, as with his earlier compositions, Liszt's later works continued to abound with forward-looking technical devices.
