Heroischer Marsch im ungarischem Stil, S231
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Liszt’s marches have not so much had an unfair press as no press at all. Like Beethoven and Schubert before him, Liszt wrote many occasional pieces which he prepared both for piano and for orchestra, and the majority of his marches exist in both instrumentations, and often for piano duet as well. It is impossible to say whether the Heroischer Marsch in ungarischem Stil was written first for the piano or for orchestra. (The excellent orchestral score, one of Liszt’s earliest, remains unpublished, and is usually omitted from catalogues, but it adds to the destruction of the myth that he needed Conradi or Raff to teach him to orchestrate rather than to help him to prepare fair copies of scores from his instructions.) Written for the King of Portugal in 1840, this effective work later became the basis for the symphonic poem Hungaria.
