'A distinguished addition to one of the most important recording projects of the CD era' (Fanfare, USA)

'Gorgeous stuff!' (CDReview)
Nothing seems to be known of the origins of Siegesmarsch—Marche triomphale (Victory March) which was not published until very recently. Although the MS is clearly a piano work, the piece seems not quite suited to the instrument, and Liszt may have intended duet and orchestral versions. The undated piece can only be loosely ascribed to Liszt’s later years on stylistic grounds, and it may be that Liszt did not wish the piece to be published, at any rate in its present form.

L’origine de Siegesmarsch ou Marche triomphale, publiée seulement très récemment, reste inconnue. Bien que le manuscrit indique clairement que c’est une pièce pour piano, celle-ci ne semble pas appropriée à l’instrument en question et il est possible que Liszt ait eu l’intention d’en composer des versions pour pianos et orchestres. Cette composition non datée ne peut lui être attribuée, sur de seules considérations stylistiques, que de manière supputatoire. Il est possible que Liszt n’ait pas souhaité que la pièce soit publiée sous sa forme actuelle.

Über die Ursprünge des Siegesmarsch—Marche triomphale, der erst vor sehr kurzer Zeit im Druck erschien, scheint nichts bekannt zu sein. Obgleich das MS deutlich ein Klavierwerk ist, erscheint das Stück dem Instrument nicht ganz angemessen, und möglicherweise plante Liszt orchestrale und vierhändige Fassungen. Aus stilistischen Gründen kann dieses undatierte Musikstück Liszts späteren Schaffensjahren lose zugeschrieben werden. Es mag sein, daß er nicht vorhatte, es zu veröffentlichen, jedenfalls nicht in seiner jetzigen Form.
