Music was a crucial part of Nazi propaganda. Please listen to the following four musical pieces, all of which played a role during the Third Reich. How does each work engage with aspects of repetition and redundancy as related to Turino’s and Moeller’s arguments? What two musical aspects does each work have that resonates with music under the Reich Chamber of Culture? Which one do you find most effective in its messaging, and why?

Goebbels on this work: “There is certainly no work in all the music literature of the German Volk that so closely relates to our times and our spiritual condition,” Goebbels opened. “How often in recent years,” he asked, had the Wach auf chorus been heard by ”faithful Germans” as a “tangible symbol of the reawakening of the German Volk out of the deep political and spiritual narcosis that it entered in November of 1918?” Towering over all Wagner’s other music dramas as “the most German of all,” Die Meistersinger was the ”incarnation of our Volkstum,” representing “everything that marks and fills the German soul.” He concluded with an extended reference to the opera’s finale as a manifesto of National Socialist cultural policy: “[M]ay the German people never lose this spirit of respect for the great men of the nation!” Only then would the new Reich “do justice” to the demand that Richard Wagner made via Hans Sachs: “Honor your German masters!”
