    Question 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)
    It's not how you play ... it's the way how you play it!

    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.

    Hi there,
    perhaps this might be of any help to you:

    Here is the track list(Trackliste) of some Heimatlieder CD

    https://www.shop24direct.de/page.php...b2ac945c79a870

    On the first CD, number 18, is the Bergveilchen-walzer, played bei "Bergland Trio".

    I looked up their home page:
    http://www.bergland-trio.de/

    Perhaps you can contact them and find out where they got their sheet music from.

    If you need any help with German I'd be glad to help

    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). 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.

    http://www.gema.de/

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

    Rhonda

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

    Mit freundlichen Grüssen,
