IN the early part of 1846, Berlioz was arranging a concert in Budapesth and was strongly advised by a local amateur to lend the programme something of a national flavour arid, if possible, to incorporate in one of the pieces a real Hungarian tune. He selected this march and arrangod it for orchestra with such success that the pieco was received with tremendous enthusiasm. Berlioz determined, accordingly, that it must by hook or by crook find its way into his Damnation, of Faust, and to that end invented a whole now episode of the story which had no place in the original.
The libretto was sternly criticized at the time, and defended by Berlioz with all his accustomed vehemence. But no such consideration affects the popularity of the March ; it is, indeed, one of the most stirring pieces of orchestral martial music which we possess.
