Chant de guerre, RO48 Op 78
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Twenty-three volumes of music and other papers were purchased after Gottschalk’s death by the Rio de Janeiro publishing house of Narciso, Arthur Napoleão & Cia. However, Napoleão was unaware that Gottschalk had named the Cuban composer and pianist Nicolás Ruiz Espadero as his literary executor. Moreover, neither was aware that Gottschalk had an exclusive contract with the New York publishers of William Hall & Son. In any event, Chant de Guerre finally appeared under the banner of Ditson’s of Boston ‘with the authorisation of [Gottschalk’s] family’. Though in 24, the imperious D flat major opening and closing sections hint at various Chopin Polonaises (which are in 34 of course); the central section is cast in the relative B flat minor, a popular tonality for funeral marches.
