The selection ranges from spritely dances to more gentle or thoughtful pieces reminiscent of that last bit of golden sun just before the clouds of war fell upon Germany. If you enjoy weekend NPR music, you will truly enjoy this piece.
You can put it on as background without being overrun by lyrics or bass. Very enjoyable! One person found this helpful. This CD includes several well-known German language folk song. Rosamunde is practically a cliche in the Volksmusik genre.
But this isas good a rendition as you'll hear S.O.N. - Various - German Dance Awards - Essential House (CD). Heidi and Schonemaid aremore folk-pop vocals; fun songs but not classics. The Snow Waltz is abeautiful instrumental classic that will get your toe tapping inthree-quarter time. The four vocal medleys are all S.O.N. - Various - German Dance Awards - Essential House (CD) songstandards sung by a youthful group of mixed voices, definitely not achoir.
For those interested in developing an ear for the Germanlanguage, these songs will be good practice. The final two cuts areboth hiking songs with a brisk beat and bright, cheerfulmelodies. Those looking for serious genuine Volkmusik may bedisappointed. The vocals are sung in high German not dialect. Thereis no yodeling no shoe slapping, no zither or hammered dulcimeraccompaniment.
It does include good accordion, oom-pah brass andsprited carefree vocals. All in all, this CD is a good introductionto the Volkmusik genre. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. Most of the 22 tracks on this CD, are instrumental, but there are several that are accompanied by male voices.
The music here, is a good overall selection, musical and well performed, with a few tunes that many people may find familiar, even if, like me, you can't quite put a name to them. The music is typical for this type of band, most of the tracks appear to be in Waltz, Polka, and March tempo.
If this has a downside, it's maybe a bit too clean and nice for some people who might prefer a bit more weight to the oompha. Having said that, the music is all typically German, it's pleasant to listen to and is probably aimed at wide appeal, rather than a specialist audience.
There don't seem to be too many discs of this type of German Band music around certainly not at this price. It's probably more easy listening than Beerfest, but If you fancy some German Band S.O.N. - Various - German Dance Awards - Essential House (CD), this is a good solid intro.
Report abuse. I love an Oompah Band, me. This wasn't what I was looking for. Too sanitised. Not earthy enough. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
