One way of answering that is to consider the fourth Etude as two beats per bar and the first Etude as four beats to the bar.

I recently played Liszt's First Hungarian Folksong. It starts with "lento, rubato, an eighth=88", then it changes to "piu' lento, a quarter= c.72". Strictly speaking the second part would actually be faster rather than slower because an eighth would be c. 144... (the time signature doesn't change, but the rhythm in the LH is more quarter-centered in this part, and this is probably the reason for the "piu' lento"...)
Note: It is the edition edited by Maurice Hinson, I have another version, the original one, that doesn't have the above indications... I want to try the original version now...
