"Auf den Straßen des Sieges", composed by Herbert Windt (originally for the movie "Sieg im Westen").

Other two pieces are unknown to me.

Cheers,
Ivan

There is a curious coincidence: the same melody is used in the German newsreel about Kiev occupation in 1941 (from 3:00 to the end):

and in the Soviet newsreel showing Soviet troops entering Kiev in 1943 (must be containing the whole melody -- the similar fragment starts at 5:00):

It must be a classical melody -- does anyone know?

Unidentified march: Help needed

Post by Maikowski » 03 Jul 2015 17:14

Dear all,
Can anyone of you identify this march ?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KymX1gCp5Xc

Although it was on the LP / CD "Die Jugend marschiert" of the Documentary Series, I doubt that it had anything to do with the HJ... but after all, I cannot be sure.
All I can say is that it could also be heard played by a german military band at a Platzkonzert somewhere in France in a german newsreel of the early summer 1940 (have not been able to find it on the internet unfortunately, but I perfectly remember).

Thanks a lot in advance.
Regards
Maiko

Hello, Maiko

You have already posted this question (see previous page) and the march is still unidentified.

As soon as the title turns up, you will be notified ;)

Cheers,
Ivan

There is a melody in German newsreels that is apparently associated with Finland: it accompanies, for example, Mannerheim's visit to Germany (starting from 0:58 in the fragment below). Is it from a famous symphony?

From 0:25 sounds some unknown RAD-Präsentiermarsch. Maybe someone knows the name and the composer? Possibly Herms Niel?

Hello and thanks to accept me in the forum..

In this video issued from german newsreel of 1944, ' Rommel auf Inspektionsreise im Westen', we can heard 'Der Eiserne' from Erich Schumann.
Who is the performer: Müller-John, or Husadel?

Hello and :welcome:

Wochenschau used only radio recordings (non-commercial, for broadcasting) and those two that you asked about weren't recorded for radio, but for Telefunken and Grammophon (they are commercial recordings, for sale). So it's neither of those two recordings. Radio recording of "Der Eiserne" was made by the band of the Regt. "General Göring" under Paul Haase on 06.06.1940. That is the one I know of, however, I can't claim that it is the only radio recording of the march that was made. Just the only one known to me.

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello,

It's "Wir tragen den silbernen Adler am Rock" (melody: "Unsere Garde").

Cheers,
