Years of Pilgrimage?

The article posted below suggested that the phrase  巡礼の年 in the title might be an allusion to Liszt's Years of Pilgrimage. Here is a fragment from the Third Year called Les jeux d'eaux à la Villa d'Este played by Claudio Arrau.

If it is indeed an allusion to Liszt, it would mean that it is NOT the first Murakami novel title without a "foreign" element after all.
