Feierlicher Marsch zum heiligen Gral aus dem Bühnenweihfestspiel Parsifal, S450
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Parsifal transcription is surely the strangest. Liszt does not really follow Wagner at all closely. It is as if he were recalling the march in a dream. Liszt’s harmony is a lot less comforting than Wagner’s, and there is no positive conclusion. As in so many of Liszt’s later works, there remains only a desolate silence.
