National Hymne 'Kaiser Wilhelm!', S197b
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Apart from being in Liszt’s hand and dated by him ‘Villa d’Este, ’76’, the National Hymne remains something of a mystery. Liszt has written ‘Kaiser Wilhelm!’ over the first notes, but, although the piece resembles a piano arrangement of a chorus, no such chorus (presumably an original work by Liszt) has yet come to light.
