Vive Henri IV, S239
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Vive Henri IV is an arrangement of a French folksong, perhaps as familiar from the closing scene of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty as anywhere, but the reason for its existence is unknown. All that survives is a fair copy in a copyist’s hand with some annotations by Liszt (his original MS is missing, and the dating is conjectural) from which the Liszt Society first published the piece in 1977.
