Marche militaire {Franz Schubert} – Grande paraphrase de concert, S426a
circa 1870 ?
D733 No 1

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Liszt’s concert paraphrase on the Marche militaire – the very famous first of the Schubert Trois marches militaires for piano duet, Op 51/D733 – seems to be, without question, the source for Tausig’s well-known transcription of the work, although Liszt’s version is a good deal more subtle. It may be that Liszt withdrew his version in favour of his pupil’s transcription, which Liszt certainly praised in his obituary of Tausig who died in 1871, not yet thirty years old. In any event Liszt’s version was published, even though it is not mentioned in the catalogues, the most recent appearance being the reprint by Kunkel of St Louis, in 1907.
