Festmarsch zur Säkularfeier von Goethes Geburtstag, S227
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Seconde Marche hongroise—Ungarischer Sturmmarsch was intended as a follow-up to the Heroischer Marsch im ungarischen Styl, and there are also unpublished versions of both pieces for orchestra. (The orchestral form of the later version of the Ungarischer Sturmmarsch has been published and recorded.) The Festmarsch zur Säkularfeier von Goethes Geburtstag was also drafted for orchestra in its early version, although only the later version has been published and recorded. Although the first thoughts are less poetic than the far grander final form, the principal theme remains one of Liszt’s most engaging. Between the marches is the Nocturne, the original form of the Impromptu and, apart from the revised version’s extensions by the odd bar of several phrases, is most noticeably different for a much stronger central climax.
