Forgotten Treasures of Marching Music

Vorderseite CD5

The title of this CD is "Vergessene Schätze der Marschmusik"  ("Forgotten Treasures of Marching Music"). It contains Austro-Hungarian military marches written during and around the time of the First World War. As time passed, many of the marches were forgotten - supposedly also caused by the turmoil at the end of the war and the immediate years thereafter. So as to make this CD-production possible, an intensive search within the Austrian National Archives was undertaken. It produced enough essential music sheets to enable our orchestra's three arrangers to bring the marches back to life again. The CD does not claim completeness, nor does it aim at romanticising this particular or any other war. Its goal is purely to make an important part of our Central European musical tradition accessible to the broader public. 

The CD is available via our homepage, through the trade, by contacting members of the band, through the contact form and by e-mail to obmann @
