The Military March No. 1 Opus 51 D.733 was published in 1826 along with two other marches although it was more than likely composed some years before this date. It was intended to be a teaching piece. The March is in the key of D with the Trio section in the sub-dominant key of G. This work for piano four hands or piano duet has become one of Schubert’s most popular works. There are many arrangements for a range of different instrument combinations. The music is both tuneful and rhythmic. The March and the succeeding Trio are both in AB binary form with the repeats being played. The March is repeated at the end of the Trio without repeats so the form in performance can be summarised by the letters AABBCCDDAB. The realisation plays back at a tempo of 120 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute which is a tempo the music editor suggests the music really comes alive. The accompaniment downloads available enable players to enjoy an ensemble music experience playing either the Primo or Secondo parts. The Primo part sounds on the one channel of the stereo signal and the Secondo part sounds on the other. Accompaniment 1 plays at 110 quarter note beats (crotchet) to the minute, Accompaniment 2 at 116 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute and Accompaniment 3 at 120 quarter note beats (crotchet) to the minute. There is a four bar count in with a woodblock sound. When performing printing two pages of music onto one side of A4 offers a very practical solution for players.
