Thanks for the very, very nice images, F.!

The first one was possibly taken at the Zeppelinfeld; also, notice his RAD dagger.

I agree about the last one - the same concert.

Autographed one - excellent as well :D

Cheers!
Ivan

Good footage.
So different to his earlier concerts...they all look like at the state funeral. Even Maestro with his cheerful music can't get a smile on anyone face...
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thanks, Michail :D

(It went for nearly EUR 100! The price of Niel's photos is seriously increasing)

Cheers,

Yep, they are.

However, a Dutch newspapers credited the occasion as a concert in the Netherlands in May 1942.

Miro as Bayreuth Festival 1940.

Ullstein Bild as 1941.

:?

Ivan

I talked about this to Michail today, is it a coincidence or...? :D

Anyhow, for those who don't understand Dutch, the first photo shows "Die blonde Rie" crew: lyricist (Hartmann), composer (Niel) and the title girl (Marie, nicknamed Rie).

Yes, we discussed it via Michail the other day, didn't you know? :D I don't think they say "Trophäe", but the rest seems right.

Cheers,
Ivan
