En avant la musique !

Another post dedicated to music after yesterday’s one. Who knows if it really happened, but it could be: some instruments such as the drum were used in military bands, and we know that violins and even contrabasses were built from scratch by soldiers on the front line. Useless to say, rythm was given by the guns!

  1. There are countless postcards depicting soldiers with improvised musical instruments. Though I’m sure there were many soldier “orchestras” like this, I believe the images were intended to reassure the families and friends back home that despite the hardship of battle, the troops still retained their good spirits.
