Looking for some German music

    I'm looking for two pieces, arranged for BB or (at a pinch) wind band:

    Bayerischer Defiliermarsch (Adolf Scherzer)

    Bergvielschen Walzer

    I've tried some of the obvious publishers / databases!

    Bayerischer Defiliermarsch (Adolf Scherzer) - here (it's for brass)

    :tup Thanks for that! I have the other one on CD but, frustratingly, it doesn't credit the composer or publisher.

    are you sure about the spelling? Bergvielschen Walzer doesn't make too much sense to me.

    On which CD is the piece?

    Correct spelling is Bergveilchen (Walzer) - means mountain violet I think. It's on 2 CD set Auf zum biergarten - Hitparade der blasmusik published by GEMA 567 798. I don't know when it was published, I bought the CD over 10 years ago in Ostend.

    yes, you're right it means mountain violet.

    Unfortunately I cannot find it either in the Internet.

    I might have to see if there's a German equivalent of TMP - der Mundstuck perhaps?

    The composer might be Hans Otter, have a look here. Can't find much in the way of a publisher or other source for the sheet music, though, sorry.

    Thanks for that! This is turning into a bit of a quest..
    It's possible to find several pieces by Herr Otter, but not Bergveilchen. However, his Wittgenstein Walzer has the same theme, wonder if it was renamed or recycled? This all started because I thought it might be good to play a Landler this summer.

    I looked into this and got the impression that the tracks were older recordings ... a bit like the fayre you get in the major outlets for bands.

    I might take you up on this, I'd want to find out who the publisher is - I think we've established that the composer is Hans Otter.
    Das ist sehr freundlich von Ihnen *reaching for phrasebook*.

    I'd get in touch with this Bergland Trio lot.
    "Volksmusik" is quite a big thing in Germany( a good reason to stay clear of Germany and the Germans I have to admit:biggrin:). Hence even if these are old(er) recordings/CDs they are still available and the Bergland Trio (I shudder to think what they might sound like...) should have the sheet music in their archive.

    If you are really absolutely hooked on this particular piece the last resource might be the GEMA, the German equivalent to British PRS.

    Not a lot I personally would like having to deal with.
    Just send me a PM if you need any help with German.

    Ah, but Volksmusik usually comes with beer, which is a good reason to conquer such aversions! :wink:

    Thank God, where I come from beer is available without Volksmusik !!!!!
    Otherwise I would have gone a tea total decades ago.

    Not bad, Herr Wilx,
    pity your keyboard doesn't have "ü".;)
    Then it would be just about perfekt!!
    Sehr gut. Setzen!:biggrin:

    Ha ha, but a sufficient quantity of the amber nectar will render even the most noxious Volksmusik a heavenly sound! And a few Maß further into your evening you will have started singing and swaying with the best of them!!

    Oh oh..... Have you seen a specialist or asked your GP about this? You might have a problem with your hearing:tongue:

    We don't have "a Maß" in our region.

    BTW: where did you get the "ß" ?
    I had to buy an extra (German) keyboard for my
    ß, ä, ü, ö :frown:
