Based on one of Hungary's national tunes, Berlioz' arrangement of the "Rakoczy Air" designate this popular piece to the opening scene of his recently completed "La Damnation de Faust". It was et in the plains of Hungary, and Faust, like Hamlet, viewed troops passing to the strains of the Rakoczy March, for which he added a more elaborate coda.

This arrangement comes with an optional bass part for use with string orchestra.
