Program Notes

The three Marches Militaires, Op. 51, are pieces in march form that Schubert wrote for piano four-hands. It is known that they were written during Shubert’s stay at Count Johann Karl Esterhazy’s summer home in Zseliz, Hungary. He had accepted a job there as music teacher to the Court’s daughters, and these and similar works were written as instructional pieces.

The first of the three is far more famous than the others. It is one of Schubert's most famous compositions, and it is often simply referred to as "Schubert's Marche militaire".

- Program Note from Wikipedia


Schubert wrote Marche Militaire No. 1, Op. 51 (of a set of three) between 1818 and 1822 for piano, four hands; it was published in 1826. The march became poplar and was arranged for other instruments during the composer's lifetime, but he could not share financially in its success since he had sold the work outright. Like most of the other Viennese composers of that time, Schubert included marches among his compositions because they were popular at both indoor and outdoor concerts.
