It's Eduard Kissel's arrangement of "Volk, an's Gewehr!" from Telefunken A 10003, performed by himself.

Question 88

Post by Alexander B. » 24 Oct 2019 23:23

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for the delay. I have to admit I've been scratching my head as to what kind of question I can ask!

I've ended up prepared something which I think is quite fun; along the lines of Ivan's previous question.

Here is a recording of a "mystery march" from my collection which I've recorded using a period appropriate phonograph for a little added challenge and pizzazz



My question is as followed:

1. Which famous march is this?

2. Who composed it?

3. This march is known today under a different title than it originally was, what was it originally titled?

4. For bonus points: Which famous manufacturer was this recording produced by?

Cheers
Alex

Hello Egor,

Thank you for participating! You are correct! Congratulations!

Can anyone get question 3? I think question 4 is a little too hard to answer seeing as so many recordings of GaK exist, which is why its only a bonus, so if we can find the answer to 3, we'll call the question finished!

Question 3: It's some mistake. The German title was and remains "Gruß an Kiel". However - in Switzerland - it's known as "Zofinger Marsch".

Question 4: Deutsche Grammophon AG (conducted by Joseph Snaga, Berlin, Hochschule für Musik, 1928).

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello Ivan,

Over question 3: Was it not originally penned under the name of "Husaren-Freuden" by Spohr when it was first composed in 1864? I have read this in several places, notably on a number of CD's, but have yet to uncover a reference source for this tidbit. What can you say to this? Maybe its bad information spreading!

Over question 4: Congratulations, correct! You are a living lexicon!

Cheers
Alex

Hello, Alex

Because of the way you phrased it (This march is known today...), I was under the impression that you thought that the march was renamed in more recent years/decades and that you might have mistaken the (old but still used) Swiss title for an alternative German title. As for the "Husaren-Freuden" title, I've seen it mentioned only once, on an LP (at least as far as I remember). Not claiming that the title was not briefly used or perhaps only meant to be used, but I've never found a reliable source mentioning it. On the other hand, I've seen the "Gruß an Kiel" title listed in catalogs from (minimum) 1883 onwards.

OK - over to Egor! :)

Cheers,
Ivan

Question 89

Post by Tretyak » 24 Nov 2019 17:08

Oh, i'm very sorry, I've completely forgot about this! :( So, here is the question: there are two marches named almost identically after a type of German infantry and written by Waffen-SS members. We don't know much about one of authors, however, the other is well known for his musical activity. Name both authors and their marches.

Question 90

Post by Ivan Ž. » 26 Nov 2019 00:22

A new one: guess the title of the song! (Optionally, guess the title of the march it was cut from.)

I know that the melodie is "Musketier' sind lust'ge Brüder" but I have no clue of this song, the far I undestood is "Unser Hauptmann..."
