What about music for German players to knock out Russian tanks to?

February 12, 2013

I’ve already offered some music for Russian players to knock German tanks out to…fine, heavy music from Russian band Оргия Праведников (reliably translated by a colleague as Orgy of the Righteous).

This started something. Steve from ‘SOUND OFFICERS CALL! A small blog about wargaming’ has offered some music for German players to crush Russians to, on this blog post here…and in the Comments to his post, there are even more suggestions!

The list from there, so far, is:

  • Anton Bruckner Symphony No 9 II Scherzo (Bewegt, lebhaft) – Trio (schnell)
  • Beethoven’s “Yorckishe March”
  • Beethoven’s “Der Alte Dessauer”
  • Tieke’s “Alte Kameraden”
  • Mnozil Brass “Moldavia”
  • The first movement of the Edgar Elgar cello concerto
  • The fourth movement (Farandole) of Georges Bizet’s L`Arlesienne suite #2 [Berlin Radio Symphony’s performance is recommended]

Any more suggestions? You can post them here – or over at Sound Officers Call!

  1. Thank you for the shout-out, EF! I have to admit, I thought the post would be funny and a good excuse to link Bruckner’s #9 but there was a very popular response in the comments. I very much enjoyed listening to ” Оргия Праведников” and the game footage on your blog.
    Music definitely makes the experience all the more enjoyable, regardless of what side of the table you’re sitting on.

    Allow me to add another one – if you’re the German player and getting crushed OR playing late war: Siegfried’s Funeral March from Gotterdammerung:

      Steve, it’s a worthwhile topic to discuss – hence the comments!
      And sharing music (whether others like it or not) is a good thing…I’ve come to love a diverse range of music because people have said to me, “Have you ever heard this? Here, have a listen…”

  2. How about The overture of Tannhauser? Or maybe Meistersinger von Nuremburg?
