    I am amazed at how the Germans continued making music right to the bitter end.

    This is Vienna; but from what I understand, even the Berlin Philharmonic did not evacuate the bombed-out Reich capital until April 1945.  Where did they even find a suitable location for performing?

    This indomitable passion for high culture is exemplary of the immortal German spirit!

    Reblogged this on Helmut Stuka and commented:
    The originators of this „reblogged“ post also have a classical music archive which includes recordings made when the Führer was alive (Furtwängler, &c.); a fine art archive; and many other archival materials of interest.  Unsurprisingly, I first found them when searching not for politics or history, but for music; Wagner and Bruckner were my keywords that fine day.

    My comment on the original post bears repeating:
