Nothing seems to be known of the origins of Siegesmarsch—Marche triomphale
(Victory March) which was not published until very recently. Although the MS is clearly a piano work, the piece seems not quite suited to the instrument, and Liszt may have intended duet and orchestral versions. The undated piece can only be loosely ascribed to Liszt’s later years on stylistic grounds, and it may be that Liszt did not wish the piece to be published, at any rate in its present form.
