Künstlerfestzug, S520ii
by 1860; revised 1883

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Par contre, the Künstlerfestzug for the Schiller centenary in 1859 is a splendid piece in every way, and compares very handsomely with the march which Meyerbeer wrote (and which Liszt transcribed—see volume 23 of the present series) for the same occasion. The memorable theme of the trio section is based on the same musical material as the second theme of Liszt’s symphonic poem Die Ideale, which is itself, of course, inspired by Schiller’s eponymous poem. Liszt also wrote orchestral and duet versions, and made some very minor revisions in the piano version for the edition of 1883, which is recorded here.
