Trompeterkorps des Kavallerie-Regiments 4

Band of the 4. Reiter-Regiment, Potsdam, in 1931. On the last seconds a bandleader can be seen (Otto Böhme?).

That is a great video which I haven't seen before! Thanks a lot for posting. I don't know when exactly did Otto Böhme became the bandleader in this unit (it is around this period), so I can't confirm it at the moment whether it is him.

Cheers,
Ivan

You're welcome!
Btw., here is something from Joachim Toeche-Mittler about the band:
"Eine seltene Darbietung gelang dem Obermusikmeister Wagner beim Berliner Reit- und Fahrturnier im Jahre 1929. In der Mitte des Sportpalastes blies er mit seinem Trompeterkorps Galoppmärsche, während die 18 Kesselpauker sämtlicher damaligen deutschen Reiter-Regimenter um ihn paukend galoppierten, natürlich auf der linken Hand im Linksgalopp. Eine hübsche Schaunummer".
(Armeemärsche. Bd. 1, p. 106).
I presume, the recordings of the Trompeterkorps from that CD were made exactly to commemorate this event (or at least in that style)?

Not sure whether they were recorded before or after the tournament, but in any case very likely the same crew (band with an additional group of kettle drummers) participated in both the tournament and the recording session.

Rec. session from 31.01.1929 for Electrola GmbH included:
- Großer Zapfenstreich
- Amazonenmarsch
- Parademarsch im Trabe des Regiments der Gardes du Corps
- Kreuzritter-Fanfare
- Hohenfriedberger Marsch
- Paradepost der berittenen Truppen
- Finska rytteriets marsch

All arrangements were made by Prof. Hackenberger.

Cheers,
Ivan
