Marche funèbre, S226a

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Marche funèbre was the young Liszt's immediate response to the death of his father. It was composed at Boulogne on 30 August 1827, two days after Adam Liszt's death, and shows a tremendous possession of heroic spirit (as George Nugent so rightly described it in his article published with the facsimile of the manuscript in the 1993 Liszt-Saeculum), much influenced by Beethoven.
