> Really? I thought it sounds more like a tribute to Holsts Mars.

That would be correct-it IS Mars.

And MARS was NOT the impetus for THE IMPERIAL MARCH as everyone likes to posit.

The IMPERIAL MARCH was born of THE IMPERIAL MOTIF from Episode 4.

And The IMPERIAL MOTIF was most likely inspired by the overture to SWAN LAKE.
