"Schubert's most original contribution to the keyboard repertory is arguably his music for piano duet... [His] unusual interest in the march scarcely stemmed from any enthusiasm for war but rather from the great range of stylistic possibilities it afforded, from funeral march to evocations of toy soldiers. The best of these marches (which include the six Grandes marches of 1824) exploit the full range of four hands while preserving a sense of intimate conversation." Grove Music Online. Item #21060
