Reserve hat Ruh' [Potpourri]

Post by D-General » 23 Nov 2019 14:22

Hello, does anyone have any information on this Potpourri I found in my mp3 Music Collection? Also, can anyone give me the names of the songs in the Potpourri as well as the lyrics to them? Thanks.

Hello,

In the second half of 1935 and early 1936 (note: soon after the formation of the Wehrmacht), there were (minimum) three different medleys recorded entitled "Reserve hat Ruh'":

1) in early October (or late September) 1935, in two parts, for Electrola, by Sinfonisches Blasorchester Bruno Seidler-Winkler; the composer of the medley wasn't credited, but it was probably (as usual in such cases) the conductor himself

2) on 4 February 1936, in two parts, for Telefunken, by Blasorchester Carl Woitschach; the composer wasn't credited = it was probably the conductor himself

3) on 21 February 1936, a single recording, for Carl Lindström (Gloria label), by Blasorchester Carl Woitschach; the composer was the conductor himself (credited under the pseudonym of Götz Höhne)

Cheers,
Ivan

PS
And what you have there is the 2nd part of the Telefunken version, featuring the following pieces: Signal „Abrücken“ – Stimmt an mit hellem hohen Klang – Treu gedient haben wir zwei Jahre – Rekrut, hier hast du mein Gewehr – Signal „Alarm“ – Auf, auf zum Kampf!

Thanks Ivan, by any chance, does anyone have the lyrics to Rekrut, hier hast du mein Gewehr? I need it for a video I’m making.
