INCLUDES TWENTY SEVEN TRACKS! OVER SIXTY FOUR MINUTES PLAYING TIME!
This reference CD from Studios Berlin features Prussian army marches of the Eighteenth- and Nineteenth Centuries, spanning the eventful years from Frederick the Great's reign to the proclamation of the German Empire in 1871, as well as a textbook performance of the complete 'Grosser Zapfenstreich.'
The productions of Studios Berlin are based on exhaustive research of period military music scores in former ducal- and royal libraries throughout Germany, and often include premier recordings of pieces once presumed lost or totally forgotten.
All selections are performed by the Stabsmusikkorps Berlin of the Bundeswehr under the direction of Oberstleutant Volker Wörrlein. The CD includes a 28-page booklet, illustrated in color, with German and English text.
Complete contents include:
Marsch aus der Zeit Friedrichs des Grossen HM I/30 (Trad. / Kosleck)
Total Playing Time: 64:06

These 27 items include both the familiar (e.g. the Kesseldorfer, the Hohenfriedberger, the Dessauer) and the rarer (e.g. the Metz Victory March; March 1741, by Frederick II). They are excellently played with the panache we expect from German military bands. It is nice to see that at least one element of the German government is interested in preserving fine historical traditions.
