Franz Liszt – Slovak father, German mother

Here is his less well-known piece Slavimo Slavno Slaveni (Let's Celebrate Famous Slavs!) composed for the Millennium celebration of the arrival of Slavic apostles Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius to the area of present-day Slovakia. The celebrations took place in Rome in July 1863, organized by Pope Pius IX; Liszt was personally present.

F.Liszt: Slavimo slavno Slaveni, Cantus Choir Bratislava

Great find Svätoslava, it is based on a work of the Serb poet Medo Pucić from Dubrovnik.

– although the English translated it wrong, it should be 'Slavs, let's celebrate glouriously' (Slavimo Slavno Slaveni).
