UC Irvine faculty member William van Overeem has fashioned two programs of obscure or rarely performed works by Franz Liszt to be given this weekend at the college's Fine Arts Concert Hall. One work, the "Consolation No. 1" for piano, is so obscure that it is not even listed in the 21 pages devoted to the composer's works in the fifth edition of the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, according to van Overeem. The piece was published in 1850 but only recently discovered in the British Museum.
