'A distinguished addition to one of the most important recording projects of the CD era' (Fanfare, USA)

'Gorgeous stuff!' (CDReview)
The Huldigungsmarsch (‘Homage March’) was composed for the inauguration of Liszt’s friend Prince Carl Alexander. Raff produced an orchestral score which Liszt revised in 1857, and the piano version, with a few corrections, was published in 1858. Liszt returned to the melody of the trio section for his Weimars Volkslied—a piece which exists in many instrumental and vocal versions, and which he clearly saw as a potential anthem for the principality of Sachsen-Weimar.

La Huldigungsmarsch (la «Marche hommage») fut composée en l’honneur du Prince Carl Alexander, ami de Liszt. Raff produisit une partie d’orchestre que Liszt révisa en 1857; la version pour piano fut publiée, avec quelques corrections, en 1858. Liszt emprunta la mélodie du trio pour Weimars Volkslied, pièce qui existe en de nombreuses versions instrumentales et vocales et qu’il perçut comme étant destinée à devenir l’hymne national de la principauté de Sachsen-Weimar.

Den Huldigungsmarsch komponierte Liszt für die Amtseinführung seines Freundes Prinz Carl Alexander. Raff brachte eine Partitur für Orchester hervor, welche Liszt 1857 überarbeitete, und die Klavierfassung erschien 1858 mit wenigen Abänderungen. Liszt kehrte zu der Melodie des Trios in seinem Weimars Volkslied zurück einem Stück, das in vielen Instrumental- und Vokalfassungen existiert und das er mit Sicherheit als mögliche Hymne für das Fürstentum Sachsen-Weimar betrachtete.
