I think you will find this one very interesting. Good luck.

It certainly helps when you've played the piece in question. Liszt Nuages Gris.

Way to go Andrew! Well that is my contribution to the current celebration of Liszt: to hopefully increase the knowledge of those who have no notion of how modern his late-thinking was regarding harmony. This is the second page of a two-page work, that most will find most foreign to the language of Liszt.

I think the average listener would have their expectations confounded by much of late Liszt: the period where he was trying to "throw his lance into the future". He influenced the Second Viennese School; indeed I believe Verklarte Nacht quotes from the sonata. Unstern! Sinistre, disastro is a fascinating piece and I think the piano/cello version of La lugubre gondola is absolutely beautiful.
