Goethe-Festmarsch, S521
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Goethe-Festmarsch, as it is usually called, is the most serious and stately of Liszt’s marches, and even abandons the four-beats-to-a-bar formula in the trio section, which, in the revised version at any rate, is in 3/2. Liszt wrote the work in 1849 for piano, but indicated some of the instrumentation even in that version. Scores in both Conradi’s and Raff’s hands survive, but Liszt reworked both orchestral and piano versions in 1857 and prepared the duet version at the same time. He made just a few alterations to the solo version for the present version which was published around 1872.
