Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (November 3, 2018)

This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion begins with a German march composed to commemorate the Saxon’s conquering the Holstein city of Kiel during the German-Danish War. The composer Friedrich Spohr was the leader of the Saxon band attached to the Saxon military units. In 1890, the march became popular with the German navy and is still played when German navy ships leave or enter port. This is a very appropriate march to begin this edition because, on this day in 1918, German sailors mutinied at Kiel, causing Kaiser Wilhelm II to abdicate on November 9 and setting the stage for an armistice that ended World War I on November 11, 1918.
