From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The music of Liechtenstein has produced an internationally renowned composer in Josef Rheinberger (1839-1901), who was mentor to Humperdinck and a friend of Franz Liszt.

The national anthem of Liechtenstein is "Oben am jungen Rhein", which was written in 1850 by Jakob Josef Jauch to the tune of "God Save the Queen", the national anthem of the United Kingdom.
