Question 75

Post by Auceps » 03 May 2016 19:00

Thank you for the information, Ivan!

My question is a bit complicated now: What was the last march Adolf Berdien conducted during his military service? Not composed, but conducted.

Question 76

Post by Ivan Ž. » 15 Dec 2016 16:44

Mr. A. keeps forgetting to confirm that the answer is correct, but since it obviously is (since he gave away the answer himself in another thread), I'll post the next question without further waiting:

Which march was played here as "Parademarsch der Spielleute"? [the first tune, played by fifes & drums]

Gruß an Kiel? I've heard some Faust's "Defiliermarsch" motives at first. :D

Your turn again!

Question 77

Post by Ivan Ž. » 19 Aug 2019 23:25

To get the quiz going (after 2+ years) - a new one - guess the song by the (translated) lyrics:

Hot glows the sun above Africa's soil.
Our tank engines sing their song!
German tanks in the burning sun
are fighting against England!

The tracks rattle, the engine roars!

"Es rasseln die Ketten, es dröhnt der Motor, Panzer rollen in Afrika vor"?

Of course! :) Your turn again - and please do post a question this time (anything, something easy, don't think about it too much).

Cheers!

Question 78

Post by Auceps » 20 Aug 2019 20:45

Hahah, thanks, Ivan! :) My question is simple: One German Musikmeister (who also served in the Wehrmacht) managed to compose a march that became an integrative part of every "Großer Zapfenstreich" behind the Berlin Wall until 1981. What was the name of this Musikmeister?

The answer is Otto Böhme (not an easy question for most members - perhaps it would be better to avoid the postwar era in the quiz, especially East Germany, which had more in common with the Soviet Union than with the Third Reich). Don't forget to confirm if the answer is correct! ;)

Cheers!

Well, I took him because he was a prominent director of music already during the Reichswehr and the Wehrmacht period and since the piece that I've meant ("Für Frieden und Freundschaft") is musically way closer to the pieces from his cavalry career. But the answer is correct, so now it's your turn again! :)

I completely understand why you chose him, but to know the answer one has to be familiar with the NVA music, rather than anything else ;)

Alright, a new question will follow soon...

Question 79

Post by Ivan Ž. » 21 Aug 2019 21:35

OK, here's a new one!

Guess the melody and the march/song it was incorporated in (junior members can just guess the melody).

Hint: don't be fooled by the lively arrangement! ;) This well-known, traditional melody was usually played much slower, especially during the Third Reich era, when it was used as an anthem by one of its (in)famous organisations. The marching song in question, in which the old melody was incorporated (as a closing tune), was dedicated to this organisation.
