Transcendental Étude No. 3 (Liszt)
The piece suggests a peaceful country scene. It is said that Liszt got the idea of writing this étude while watching the scenery change during a train ride. The first section is played poco adagio with a sempre legato e placido indication at the start. There are gentle arpeggios and constant dynamic changes and syncopation, and the melody is often played in thirds or octaves.
