Marche des pèlerins de la symphonie Harold en Italie de Berlioz, S473ii

1834; Op 16
1862; second version

The Pilgrims’ March—chanting the evening prayer is the only part of ‘Harold’ that Liszt arranged without the need for the viola. To compensate for the absence of the cross-string bowing at the end of the movement, Liszt gives us the passage twice, with entirely different textures, as if to apologize!
