Hmm... Can't find anything at the moment unfortunately. There was (at least) one more purchase link, but it seems that it's inactive now. Hope the book will be available somewhere soon.

Several posts concerning the book "The Military Music & Bandsmen of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich 1933-1945" have been split-off into an older topic dealing with its author and his company.

Entartete Musik

Elise Petit; Bruno Giner
Entartete Musik
Musiques interdites sous le IIIe Reich
Bleu nuit éditeur, Paris, 2015

For those who read French, this book was published in 2015. Elise Petit and Bruno Giner wrote it for "grand public", i.e music amateurs with an interest in music in the Third Reich. It has a lot of illustrations.
From what I remember, chapter 1 is about music in the Weimar Republic, chapter 2 about the rise to power. They then have chapters on "degerate music", speaking also about the exhibit "Entartete Musik" in Düsseldorf (1938). One chapter is about the "official" musics, notably Wagner, Beethoven, Orff. The last chapter is a set of biographies of musicians who were victims of the regime.

A must have for French-readers who want an easy-reading panorama on the subject
