Ernst Busch - Oktobersturm - Aufbau (Aurora, 1967) (In celebration of Victory Day)

To celebrate the 73th "Victory Day" we present another "Aurora" release with Ernst Busch recordings. Victory Day is celebrated on May 8, to mark the date when the World War II allies formally accepted the unconditional surrender of the armed forces of Nazi Germany, thus ending the war in Europe. The day is celebrated in Russia on May 9.

It was first inaugurated in the fifteen republics of the Soviet Union, following the signing of the surrender document late in the evening on 8 May 1945 (after midnight, thus on 9 May, by Moscow Time). The Soviet government announced the victory early on 9 May after the signing ceremony in Berlin.

This day is still celebrated to commemorate the 28 000 000 (according to various estimates) children, parents, spouses and friends killed in Soviet Union during II World War for independence from Nazi Germany.

"Oktobersturm - Aufbau" is another set of two EPs and an informative booklet with 44 pages about the songs and their historic context. It is the second of two editions of Buschs "Chronik in Liedern, Balladen und Kantaten aus der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts" honouring the 50th anniversary of the "Great Socialist October Revolution". The tracks were recorded between September 1966 and September 1967 under the direction of Adolf Fritz Guhl.


Lied der Gefangenen
Im Kerker zu Tode gemartert
Brüder, zur Sonne, zur Freiheit

Russisches Bauernlied
Linker Marsch

Tschapajews Tod 
Von Land zu Lande 
Die Rote Armee marschiert 
Der heimliche Aufmarsch 

Der Zukunft entgegen 
Das Lied vom Vaterland
