Didn't know about this "Nibelungenmarsch", and the interesting history behind it.
I realy enjoyed listening to it !!
Loved it so much, i searched, found and bought immediately the record (Electrola EG 2653).
Thanks for sharing the fanfare and the marsch, Ivan !!

Greetings, Glenn.

Cheers, Glenn (and congratulations on your purchase ;) ).

Note that the band of the previously-mentioned Leibstandarte-SS "Adolf Hitler" also made a recording of the "Nibelungenmarsch", but it's not easy to find nowadays.

The "Nibelungenmarsch" can be also heard at the end of the "Triumph des Willens" movie, during the Nazi banner scene (before Hitler's final speech), see the soundtrack list here: viewtopic.php?f=81&t=212742#p687897

I have read the tickets are very hard to get and cost $500 or more each person.
If you 'just go' are any activities open to general public?

I collect music and bury long term archive in legally protected preserve locations.
Guess you could call the hermetic container a time capsule. Its cheap and if recovery is not required, then abandoned in place.
I use magnetic and semiconductor based storage techniques.

This year my push is classical genre so I'm scouring the antique stores in Germanic area of Texas. ie Fredericksburg, New Braunfels and so on..

Hello Witcher,

If You join a Wagner society the waiting time for tickets is reduced by half!
And there are cheaper tickets than $500.

Ok guys...please have a look again at the link on my first thread.
Made some adaptions, corrections, new items and so on. Made a small book of my Bayreuth collection...

Greetings.

Thanks, This year I'm doing a nationalist 'genre' collect push.
I buy on eBay, secondspin, bn, amazon etc. The marching/festival and Bavarian pre 1950 can be difficult to find now. It was much more available several years ago!
Thanks for putting up list of titles to look for.
Best to you.

Thank You guys !!!
A few militaria publishers were enthusiastic at first but eventually found it too niche to publish.
The dutch Wagner society wants to publish a series of articles from this in their magazine.

Yes, a fine collection. And we also remember the history of "Gau Bayreuth" over the Third Reich era:
Gau Oberfranken (Upper Franconia) was created in 1925 by Gauleiter Hans Schemm; in 1933 Gau Oberfranken morphed into Gau Bayerische Ostmark by Schemm's efforts to unite the three Gaue of Oberpfalz, Niederbayern and Oberfranken into one Gau through an internal power struggle which left Schemm as Gauleiter; and in 1942 Gau Bayerische Ostmark was renamed Gau Bayreuth in acknowledgement of it's capital city. Schemm died in 1935 from the effects of a plane crash that he was piloting; he was succeeded as Gauleiter of Bayerische Ostmark by his Deputy, Fritz Wachtler, who organized the Gau's name-change to Gau Bayreuth in 1942 and who was shot on charges of defeatism on April 19, 1945. The SS squad which executed Wachtler was led by his Deputy, SS-Brigadeführer Ludwig Ruckdeschel, who ran the Gau until war’s end.

If there is one thing that's constant, it's change!
