The official AHF Third Reich music quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 21 Jun 2007 17:25

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success so I'm starting one here in this new section too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on Third Reich music) and so on.

"Carl Peters" - 1941?

That is a guess...

Question 4

Post by Ivan Ž. » 24 Jun 2007 18:48

Let's make this a bit spicy: US Marine Band recorded in 1891 a German march called "Farewell to Dresden" (mp3). This march is performed in Germany today as well, but it is known by a completely different title, since 1908. It is incorrectly credited to a composer who was only 9 years old when the US Marine Band recorded it. What is the (today known) title of this march and who is its (false) composer?

Small help: for example, it was recorded by Carl Woitschach for Ultraphon in 1930.

"Under dem Grillenbanner" / Wilhelm Lindemann. Was this march ever known as "Farewell to Dresden" outside of that one recording you found on Columbia?

"Unter dem Grillenbanner", yes, that's correct.

Question 5

Ivan Ž. wrote:"Unter dem Grillenbanner", yes, that's correct.

He he he...ok. You see, it is my other, American side coming out. Always trying to "Americanize" things! Unterstand? ;)

Here is one that I found interesting when I heard about it. The following songs (..and a few other, I believe...) all use a melody which pre-dates them and is not German in origin:

1. "Blau Äuglein"
2. "Heil Deutschland"
3. "Kam'rad, reich' mir die Hände (Hakenkreuz am Stahlhelm)"

What was the original tune called and who is it's composer?

Blue Bell, composed by Theodore F. Morse in 1904.

Question 6

Post by Ivan Ž. » 04 Jul 2007 06:10

Who is this conductor? In 1940 he recorded a march named after a variant of this salute...

Would it be Friedrich Ahlers, at that time conductor of the well-known I. Musikkorps des Infanterie-Regiments Großdeutschland?
He and his band recorded a march called "Treueschwur", hence my guess.
