Land der Berge, Land am Strome English: Land of the mountains, land on the river National anthem of Austria Lyrics Paula von Preradovic Music Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Adopted 1946

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", KV 623. In parts of the edition of this cantata there appeared the "Chain Song" KV623A. To this melody the Austrian National Anthem is sung. The lyrics were written by the writer Paula von Preradovic. On October 22, 1946 it was declared Austria’s official national anthem.

In 2005, Women’s Minister Maria Rauch-Kallat stated her objection to the words ’sons’, ’fraternal’ and ’Fatherland’ in the lyrics and proposed changes. However, this was quickly dismissed as a news-item in times of little other news.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
