Fucik originally entitled this splendid concert march La Rosa di Toscana but it was considered politically incorrect by the powers of the day and he renamed it Florentiner Marsch and used the subtitle Grande marcia italiana. A breathtaking piece invoking memories of the splendours of the military music produced by the Austro-Hungarian empire. It is easy to imagine it being played by the Regimental Bands of those Italian Bersaglieri fast doubling sharpshooters. As it is, this adaptation for recorder sextet is long overdue, an excellent piece to sharpen up double-tonguing skills!
A tempo of 160 crotchets/min. is mandated by the composer.
