Can anyone tell me which tunes comprise the soundtrack to the second reel of Wochenschau 574? The first and second tracks in particular (Mussolini's arrival/troop review scenes) have piqued my interest.
Hello and :welcome:

The second track (1:41-2:00) is Husadel's march "Flieger-Fanfare".

Wagner's Grand War March from "Rienzi" (Act III, Finale) at 3:41-7:20.

Cheers,
Ivan

Thanks a bunch Ivan, that's quite helpful! I'm wondering if the march starting at 2:00 is also possibly some German flier's march, or else possibly an Italian march. Wochenschau was known to use Italian-themed music on occasion, but I'm not certain if that's the case here.

Yes, this is another Husadel's fanfare march, "Ministerfanfare", dedicated to the Reichsminister der Luftfahrt Hermann Göring.

A nice identification, Egor! Haven't heard that piece before.

That's amazing, thanks so much! That one seems to be a very rare tune, there isn't a lot of reference to it I can find. I can't help but wonder if a period recording exists in some dusty attic somewhere.
