Marche héroïque, S510
by 1848

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Marche héroïque is a transcription of one of Liszt’s many works for men’s chorus with piano: the Arbeiterchor (‘Workers’ Chorus’), which was withdrawn just before publication in 1848 lest it be thought inflammatory in the current revolutionary political climate. Liszt also made a version for piano duet. Anton von Webern, of all people, orchestrated the original accompaniment to the choral work in 1924. For the piano version, Liszt added a new central section, and the opening will be familiar to those who recognise the coda to the symphonic poem Mazeppa.
