According to his own reminiscences (from 1908) and remarks made by his biographer Antonija Kassowitz-Cvijić (in 1924), the outstanding Croatian musicologist, music historian and ethnomusicologist Franjo Ksaver Kuhač spent several weeks in 1856 or 1857 in Weimar attending there the well-known piano school run by Franz Liszt. The field work effectuated by the author of this article in June 2017, encompassing several institutions in Weimar (Goethe & Schiller Archiv, Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt – Library, Franz Liszt Museum and Landes-Archiv), has for the moment produced no material evidence on Kuhač’s sojourn in Weimar during the above mentioned period. It is suggested to further trace some bibliographical and other documentary sources concerning more extensive lists of Liszt’s Weimar students in order to bring to end this work in progress.
However, in Franz Liszt’s huge legacy, kept in the Goethe & Schiller Archiv, the original (and unique) copy of Liszt’s honorary diploma has been found, which was assigned to him by the Zagreb Musikverein in 1846 on the occasion of his concert given in Zagreb on 27 July 1846. In addition, a document has been discovered containing the original Croatian text by the Dubrovnik aristocrat and poet Medo Pucić and its translation into German by the Croatian cleric Stjepan Mlinarić of the choral piece »Slavimo slavno, Slaveni«, which was intended for Liszt, who eventually set it to music in Rome in 1863 on the occasion of the celebration of 1000 years of activities by SS. Cyril and Methodius. It was premiered in the Croatian Institute of St Jerome in Rome.
