No, not Ahlers...

The conductor is famous, but that march I've mentioned isn't.

Pay attention to his uniform, rank, decorations and cufftitle...

Question 7

Post by Ivan Ž. » 09 Jul 2007 13:48

OK, here's the answer (you'll probably laugh): that is Leibstandarten-Obermusikmeister, SS-Sturmbannführer Hermann Müller-John :) I thought that would be easy for everyone... The march I've mentioned is called "Führergruß" (variant of the salute which Hitler mostly used - with the arm bent up from the elbow).

Next one: Die vier Wedding-Boys recorded in 1933 a folk song called "Als die gold'ne Abendsonne" (everyone here knows the famous SA version). Question: What is the intro-tune , the first 10 sec? (mp3)

Das Wandern ist des Müllers Lust by Zöllner / Müller

I knew Müller-John was the man but I didn't know LSSAH recorded a march called "Führergruß"

Correct!

You should have posted the answer for HMJ, the question was only about conductor, march was mentioned only btw.

Cheers,

Question 8

But, you see Ivan, I wanted to slam dunk both the answer to the question and you're little tantalizing trivia..... You should have waited another day or so. I probably would have found that march!

The following image is of a man who, although likely celebrating the Christmas season in the photo, was hardly famous as the composer of church hymns! He is, in fact, responsible for some of the best known German marches of World War II. Who is he?

Isn't this man Norbert Schultze? As far as I know, he wrote a music for "Lili Marleen", "Bomben auf Engeland", "Von Finnland bis zum schwarzen Meer", "Lied der Panzergruppe Kleist" and "Panzer rollen in Afrika vor"...

Well done, Schmeisser. He lived until October 14th, 2002 passing away at 91 years of age. It is now your turn.

This woman is famous for numerous perfomings of, maybe, the most famous German WWII song:

Yes, Paul Graener is correct...it was a trick question, as I thought people would say the more well known Wilhelm Furtwängler.
You go!
