I think I'm close, I just can't put my finger on it. Don't keep me at arms length on the answer. I'm going to put my finger in the air and see which way the wind is blowing. Ah! The good old days, when an upraised hand was good for something more than hailing a taxi!

Hello, Robb

Hint 2: who laughs in the song? It is 'his march'.

Question 59

Post by Myron » 18 Jul 2009 09:35

Dresden Opera, 10 February 1938: Karl Böhm staged a succesful first performance of Richard Mohaupt's opera Die Wirtin von Pinsk - and later it was banned. Why?

Mohaupt's opera was banned when the authorities discovered the composer's wife was Jewish.

Question is free.

Question 60

Post by Robb » 21 Jan 2010 11:21

Next Question: This song is one of the most well known Wehrmacht songs. It was composed on the way to Königsbruck. The Composer adapted a German sailor's song, writing lyrics more appropriate to the Panzerwaffe.

Song? When composed? Who by?
