'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
The Marche funèbre was the young Liszt's immediate response to the death of his father. It was composed at Boulogne on 30 August 1827, two days after Adam Liszt's death, and shows a tremendous possession of heroic spirit (as George Nugent so rightly described it in his article published with the facsimile of the manuscript in the 1993 Liszt-Saeculum), much influenced by Beethoven.

La Marche funèbre fut la première réponse du jeune Liszt à la mort de son père. Composée à Boulogne le 30 août 1827 (soit deux jours après la mort d’Adam Liszt), elle fait montre d’une vertigineuse possession de l’âme héroïque (décrite avec tant de justesse par George Nugent dans l’article qu’il publia avec le fac-similé du manuscrit, dans le Liszt-Saeculum de 1993), fortement influencée par Beethoven.

Français: Hypérion

Der Marche funèbre war die unmittelbare Reaktion des jungen Liszt auf den Tod seines Vaters. Komponiert wurde er am 30. August 1827 in Boulogne, zwei Tage nach dem Tod von Adam Liszt, und er weist eine enorm heroische Stimmung auf, die (wie George Nugent so richtig in seinem Artikel schrieb, den er mit dem Faksimile des Manuskriptes im Liszt-Saeculum 1993 veröffentlichte) stark von Beethoven beeinflußt war.
