Composer

Notes & Reviews:

For Liszt's development as a composer, the position as court director of music at Weimar signified a crucial change: his creative activity, which up to this point had focused on virtuosity at the piano, was now mainly dedicated to orchestral compositions. His influences in this genre included Hector Berlioz (idée fixe) and Ludwig van Beethoven (program music). Eschewing a strict formal structure as his compositional starting point, Liszt opted for a more free-form poetic approach.

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.
