In March 1848 Liszt took up residence in Weimar with his new partner Princess Carolyne Sayn-Wittgenstein; thus entering a more settled period. Not least encouraged by his partner; he turned his back on his career as a virtuoso and started concentrating on composing; in summer 1848 he finished work on the studies known today as Il lamento; La leggierezza and Un sospiro. Unlike Liszt's early studies that concentrated more on piano technique; the new concert studies are dominated by poetic ideas and tonal concept. They are often played in recitals and number amongst the compulsory pieces at music conservatories and piano competitions.
