The Ungarischer Marsch zur Krönungsfeier am 8ten Juni 1867 in Ofen-Pest
may well have been thought of for the Hungarian coronation at that time, but it was not completed until 1870. It was published the following year, also in versions for orchestra and for piano duet. This is a concise, rather violent piece, in which the tonality is constantly threatened or altered by mediant progressions, although the trio section is much more reflective, and the solo version has some extra decoration which suspends the metrical flow.
