István Baróti playes his transcription. Funérailles is an elegy written in October 1849 in response to the crushing of the 1848 Hungarian Revolution by the Habsburgs, is the 7th piece in the collection of piano pieces by Franz Liszt entitled Harmonies Poétiques et Religieuses (Poetic and Religious Harmonies). It is perhaps the most famous of the collection. Funérailles is subtitled "October 1849". This has often been interpreted as a sort of funeral speech for Liszt's friend Frédéric Chopin, who died on 17 October 1849, and also due to fact that the piece's left-hand octaves seem to echo the central section of Chopin's epic Heroic Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53. However, Liszt said that it was not written with Chopin in mind, but was instead meant as a tribute to three of his friends who died in the failed Hungarian uprising against Habsburg rule in 1848. They were Prince Felix Lichnowsky, Count László Teleki and the Hungarian Prime Minister, Count Lajos Batthyány. Batthyány was executed on 6 October 1849 for his part in the uprising. This was recorded by György Gyarmati, 2009 oktober 23 - Liszt-week. Esztergom Cathedral.
