Notes & Reviews:

Franz Liszt had great plans when he entered service for the grand duke at the court at Weimar, hoping to create a musical center in this city of Goethe and Schiller. While Liszt's plans were never realized due to the narrow-minded attitude of the locals, Weimar caused a crucial change in the composer's creative development: his compositions shifted from solo piano to orchestral. In his pieces for piano and orchestra, we see these two musical worlds united.

American Record Guide
The big news here is the march Liszt wrote in 1849 for the Weimar centennial of Goethe's birth, though he rewrote it 10 years later; there's nothing about it in the paltry notes so I'm guessing this is the later version. I defy you to sit through this piece without thinking of the march from Sibelius's Karelia Suite. It's an upbeat processional that wears its chromatic mantle lightly. But Ferencsik also recorded Liszt's Hungarian Battle March for Hungaroton - you may know it as Hungarian Storm March - and that could certainly have been included here.
