Third Reich newsreel soundtracks

Post by Derrick » 22 Jun 2005 04:41

I was just looking around for speeches without the translations overtop and music from that time period.

I ran across the 'Books burn as Goebbels speaks' real player movie at the bottom of this page.
http://www1.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?l ... d=10005852

I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the song that they are singing at the end of his speech?
If not is there a movie clip that contains more of this song?

The song they are singing is "Volk, an's Gewehr!" :)

Some of the background themes to the latter-war Deutsche Wochenschau battle scenes were almost classical in their "virtuosity". Who composed them? Which orchestra played them?

Does anyone know who composed the beautiful and spectacular music of Die Deutsche Wochenschau (particularly Wochenschau of the years 1942-1945)? Which orchestras or bands played them?

Thanks for your help!

Hi!

This has been posted to "SS & Polizei" forum long ago but nobody there seemed to be able to identify the march being played in the following parade clip, downloadable from: http://aeiou.iicm.tugraz.at/aeiou.film.f/f135a

The parade takes place in Vienna after Anschluss and has e.g. Kaltenbrunner and Stahlecker among saluting guests. Parading units seem to be from Schutzpolizei as well as the band. I first thought that the music could be Polizeimarsch-Berlin but after couple of times of listening it still sounds a bit different. Other suggestions? :)

Have you ever seen the Vienna New Year's concert? The traditional closing march? "Radetzky-Marsch" :D

Cheers,

Ivan:

Of course I do know Radetzky :). Somehow I still can't connect that piece of marching music to tradiitonal verse of Radetzky. It has some resemblance but the main theme seems slightly different. I even made couple of friends (who know Radetzky well) to watch and listen to it and both of them (like me) were unable to connect it.

Is there full clip with audio available somewhere? If you could point to me which part of the Radetzky is played by the band during this clip, that would help a lot. Usually I recognize these marches immediately - if they are well known like Radetzky - but this one is very difficult, perhaps due to very "metallic" sound of police band.

Edit: it might be Radetzky... but then the tempo is awfully slow or otherwise weird to my ears :)

Although "Radetzky" isn't my favourite march, I whistle it every day (I don't know why) and I know every single part of it. Believe me it is it.

In the video can be heard the trio from the march (the folk tune Strauß incorporated in his piece).

Cheers,
Ivan

Now I'm starting to get a hang of it, so to say! :)

You are right with that. Still, this is the most obscure rendition of Radetzky I have heard!

Your expertise on this area is awesome! :)

There were two main composers as far as I know: Herbert Windt and Norbert Schultze.

obit for Norbert Schultze: http://www.brightlightsfilm.com/46/norbert.htm
"Recruited for military service, Schultze was mainly involved in composing music for Wochenschau journals during the war."

reference to Herbert Windt: Deutsche Wochenschau Nr. 681 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0035803/fullcredits#cast
"Music Department: Herbert Windt .... composer: stock music"

I believe the opening fanfare comes from Liszt's Preludes
