Who is this composer and band leader, in the middle?
His career started in the Kaiser's era and finished it in the Third Reich.

Ok, here is a little clue:
this man is chiefly known for one march he composed that starts with a "L".

Yes, you are correct!
This is Max Hempel who served in several military bands from 1895 till 1944!
Quite a long time, isn't it?

He composed the Laridah-Marsch but also a lot more, less known today:
Bayrisch blau, Blancarlos-Marsch, Dr- Heissl-Marsch, Eva-Marsch, Fortuna-Marsch, General-Bergmann-Marsch, Hurrah-Marsch, von-Hösslin-Marsch, Major Krampf, MAN-Marsch, Oberst-Nissl-Marsch.

There are probably many more I think.

Hitler shakes hands with...?

This excellent photo was taken on Hitler's 46. birthday and the "mysterious man" died 10 months later. He was a famous composer (and conductor).

Cheers,
Ivan

This is Georg Fürst 8-)

And yes, the photograph is great. The landscape seems to be, at least for me, a little unusual, stark..

I am going to post a topic with his biography in English so that most people can read it.

Question 14

Post by Sdt » 19 Jul 2007 20:17

My question for tonight:

For what reason were many SS choirs in 1933 and military choirs in general later in the NS regime composed of "old" men? When I say old I mean 35-45 years old.

Hi Robb,

Yes, of course. I had forgotten my question in fact.
Well, the question is easy. There is no trap!

Members of these choirs belonged to the military and were soldiers when the war broke out. For which obvious reason should the military replace the younger members with older men?

I can't say more! You don't need to know about military music to answer.

Hi Sdt,

I would say all the younger men were called up for active military duty, especially as the war progressed and German losses escalated.

Hi Robb,

Yes, you are correct. Musicians were soldiers and were called up for duty. They could be replaced by men from the reserve army, older.

Your turn!
