Austrian National Anthem (ver. 1) by Johann Holzer - Piano Sheets and Free Sheet Music

  
About the Song
Land der Berge, Land am Strome (Land of the mountains, land on the river) is the national anthem of Austria. Nineteen days before his death on December 5, 1791, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his last complete work, the Freimaurerkantate, K. 623. In parts of the printed edition of this cantata there appeared the song K. 623a "Lasst uns mit geschlungnen Händen" (Let us with joined hands). To this melody the Austrian national anthem is sung. Today, Mozart's authorship is regarded as dubious and the song is attributed to Johann Holzer (1753–1818). The lyrics were written by the writer Paula von Preradović. On October 22, 1946, it was declared Austria's official national anthem.    Download this sheet!
