En mémoire de Maximilien I – Marche funèbre, S162d
after 19 June 1867; first version

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
En mémoire de Maximilian I is the first version of the Marche funèbre from the third book of the Années. All the catalogues date this piece and its revision in 1867, presumably because the manuscript bears the date '19 juin 1867', but that is merely the date when the Emperor of Mexico was executed. The date of composition cannot be precisely determined, and the revision may well have been made only at the time the published collection was assembled. The most obvious among numerous differences from the final version is the much shorter and less triumphal ending.
