Kinizsi, Op. 80 by Julius Fučik, is a concert march celebrating Hungary’s most popular and successful military general, Pál Kinizsi (1432-1492). Although this march is popular throughout Hungary and Eastern European, it is not often performed outside of the continent and is certainly not as well known as Fučik’s very popular Florentiner March, which is a staple for bands and orchestras throughout the world.
Kinizsi displays the compositional craft for which Fučik (a student of Antonín Dvořák) is known, with clear phrase structure, memorable melodies and evocative orchestration. Here the original version for European brass band, which included variously pitched tubas and trumpets as well as a consort of flugelhorns, has been re-scored for the instruments of our modern wind band.

The Kinizsi March is dedicated to the memory of the Hungarian national hero, Pál Kiniszi, a commoner who led Hungary to victory over the Ottoman Turks in 1479.
