It's been a few months, who'll be writing the next question?

Question 106

Post by Maikowski » 31 Oct 2020 10:39

Well, it was my turn actually. My apologies to all of you for the long time without posting a new question... :oops:

Alright, here it is : Whom or what was G. Fister's march "Schwarze Bataillone!" dedicated to ?

Cheers
Maiko

Well, if no one else wants to give it a try: it was one of two marches Fister dedicated to the LSSAH band (the other one being "Treue um Treue").

Cheers,
Ivan

That's it ! And both titles were played by the band and recorded for Gloria (in 1937, I believe).
Your turn, Ivan.

Question 107

Post by Ivan Ž. » 15 Nov 2020 17:19

Thanks, Maiko. Yes, they were both recorded in 1937, on 25 February. It's unknown whether the scores for those compositions were ever published, the band used manuscripts for both pieces during the recording session.

All right, the next one is a "where's Waldo" type of question: find (and name) a well known composer in the crowd behind Goebbels... :)

All right, let's make it real simple: who is this well known military composer and bandleader? :)

(... who was also one of Goebbels' main propaganda tools during WWII.)

:thumbsup: (If you look carefully, you'll see he's the only bandleader visible on stage; the others are orchestra/choir members.)

Your turn, Egor!

Question 108

Post by Tretyak » 24 Nov 2020 22:54

Okay, this must be not so easy one: what is the real (English) name of Fritz Brase's "Irischer Armeemarsch"? It was performed first in 1923 and has something to do with the Irish Defence Forces and its high command.

If no one else will give it a try... It was named after the person who invited Brase to Ireland: General Richard Mulcahy (General Mulcahy March).

Cheers,
Ivan
