Grand galop chromatique in E-flat major, S.219 is a bravura piece by Franz Liszt, composed in 1838. This gallop was one of Liszt's favorite encores which he considered a "rouser.[1]" The galop chromatique was published as a piano solo version and also as a piano duet version (S.616). Among 20th century pianists, György Cziffra notably attained enormous audience success with this piece.
