Reinhards Verbrechen [aus "Amen"]

Post by Waffen Soldat » 15 Dec 2004 21:37

Has any one heard of the song that Reinhard Heydrich's father did, called Reinhard's mistake or something like that?

It was for the violin and called "Reinhards Verbechen" (Reinhards Crime)

Prophetic, isn't it?

Reinhard Heydrich's father, Bruno, was a professional musician, an opera singer and composer, who composed a number of operas.

His best-known opera was called "Amen", and contained the instrumental piece "Reinhards Verbrechen", named after the hero of the work.

Reinhard Heydrich was named after the hero of his father's opera.

His full name was Reinhard Tristan Eugen Heydrich - the Tristan came from the hero of Wagner's pera "Tristan und Isolde", the Eugen from Prince Eugen, a famous Habsburg general of the late 17th century.

Yes the French born Prince - der ‘Retter des Abendlandes’.

Heydrich was named after him?

What a shame.

Judging how no one seems to be able to find it, it's doubtful!

I remembered seeing this a while back and through luck and Google was able to find it again. The Library of Congress website has a printed copy of Bruno Heydrich's opera it seems and it is able to be viewed online. I hope the link works as this is only my 1st or 2nd post here.
