The RÃ¡kÃ³czi march is often referred to as the âHungarian Marseillaiseâ. The beginnings of this march song go back to around 1730. In the text, the Hungarians summon Franz II RÃ¡kÃ³czi to free his people from the Habsburg oppression.Â The melody has been arranged many times, e. g. by Brahms and Berlioz, even Liszt made several arrangements of varying degrees of difficulty. He eventually did a âconcert arrangementâ of the theme in his highly virtuosic Hungarian Rhapsody no. 15. Henle's Urtext edition opens with a knowledgeable preface by the Hungarian Liszt scholar MÃ¡ria Eckhardt.
