In an example of creative licensing at work, Deutschmeister Marches is a budget compilation of Austrian "Hoch und Deutschmeister" band music from Kado Music, a company that hails from Florida and distributes German, Irish, and other "world music"; sound effects records; Christmas compilations; and the like. Although these marches are credited jointly to Die Original Deutschmeister Kapelle under Julius Herrmann and a group identified as "Die Grosse Regimentsmarchekapelle: Military Tradition", listeners are not told who plays what. Listening from track to track, there are clearly two different sonic perspectives and one group is a relatively small band, whereas the other is a standard regimental unit. Professor Julius Herrmann is a known quantity; he revived Die Original Hoch und Deutschmeister Kapelle in October 1945 and led it until his death in 1977; likely, these recordings were made in the 1960s or early '70s. They are a little muffled and fuzzy-sounding here and obviously do not represent the absolute best-recorded options one could have of such music -- it's such a vast field that it would be hard to say what the "absolute best" one would be -- but there is an upside to Deutschmeister Marches. The performances are wonderfully relaxed, completely true to the idiom, and played in the slightly higher pitch observed by most traditional Austrian bands; helicon tubas are used as well. All of the musical selections are well within the Austro-Hungarian military band tradition and many will prove familiar to those conversant in such music. If you are throwing an Oktoberfest party and are looking for appropriate music to set on auto-repeat, or have an older relative who takes a fancy to Austrian march music yet whose hearing doesn't handle the high end too well, then Kado Music's Deutschmeister Marches will easily meet such requirements. Sometimes "creative licensing" is not such a bad thing after all.
