Hello

Found an article by Thomas Freitag in German magazine Militärgeschichte Heft 1/2013.

Note that great photo in Rome!

Thanks,Kim

Hallo all members of the Axis History Forum!

I wonder if someone please could help me with some information on the song 'Und Hermann Göring heißt er'. My question is if someone knows who actually wrote the music and lyrics to this song?

Many thanks in advance from

Erika

Post by Anasterian » 14 Apr 2014 13:05

Hello, anyone know where I can find sheet music for songs such as Erika? I've been looking hard but I haven't found anything. would be great to get a score for a full band but just a good Piano arrangement would be fine, I can make the rest out with that as a template.

Brings up 14 "hits" but looks like only 2 are band arrangements. But at a very good price!

I've had good luck with this source here in the US. Last piece I ordered (about 3 weeks ago) arrived in less than a week of being ordered on-line.

There are also several march medleys that contain Erika - look under "potpourri."

Good luck.

In Dr. Karl Grundmann's article "Deutsches Kulturleben In Warschau" (March 1941) I found this:
...Dem stärkeren Theaterleben ging ein sich immer mehr entfaltendes Musik leben zur Seite. Das große Konzert der Dresdner Philharmoniker füllte bis auf den letzten Platz das 2000 Personen fassende "Roma", das vor dem Kriege Lichtspielhaus, jetzt vorwiegend für politische Veranstaltungen bestimmt, und damit zum "Sportpalast" von Warschau geworden ist. Hier finden die großen Kundgebungen statt, in denen Reichs- und Volksdeutsche sich schon oft zu erhebenden Feierstunden zusammengefunden haben, um nur an die erste Großkundgebung am 28.1.1940 mit dem Gauleiter Frauenfeld oder an das Großkonzert des Arbeitsdienstes mit Herms Niel zu erinnern...
In the publication Warschau unter deutscher Herrschaft (1942), chapter "Deutsches Kulturleben in Warschau", you can read:
...Einer der Höhepunkte war die Feierstunde des Reichsarbeitsdienstes am 31.8.1940, zu der über 20 000 deutsche Menschen aus dem gesamten Distrikt in Warschau zusammengeströmt waren. Die vom Reichsarbeitsdienst wirkungsvoll durchgeführte Feier war für die meisten der hier lebenden Volksdeutschen das erste Erlebnis einer Großkundgebung im nationalsozialistischen Stil. Auch die Umbenennung des größten Platzes der Stadt Warschau in "Adolf-Hitler-Platz" am 1.9.1940...
Does anyone know when actually that "Großkonzert des Arbeitsdienstes" took place in Warsaw's Roma theatre?

Thanks,
Greg
