Volksmusik - Volkstümliche Musik
I don't agree with the definition - This article should be called "Volkstümliche Music" instead of Volksmusik, in my opinion. The latter refers to traditional German music which has existed for centuries. Composers from the classical to the romantic period were aware of this traditional music and incorporated form and tonality into their works.
"Volkstümliche Musik" should be the correct term for the musical genre geared towards and popular among older people. My opinion here is supported by the television programme featuring such music, called "Die Volkstümliche Hitparade" (Anon.)
- Quite right. The translation is "Folk music". The present text should be edited into Volkstümliche Music, where it belongs, this present title turned into a redirect for German folk music, and text written there for a fresh stub (I'm not competent). There is not yet an article for German folk music however, or the narrower and less suitable Volkslieder, which is presented with a redlink in the German music template, but should be a redirect to German folk music, rather than to Lieder. --Wetman 08:10, 15 December 2005 (UTC).
Well, let's do it then...
This article (as well as the article "Volkstümliche Musik") lays too much stress on "alpine" Volksmusik. As well as "american folk music" isn´t only bluegrass or s.th. there are a lot of different Volksmusik-traditions all over the country. An extension of the article would be nice. The so-called "Volkstümliche Musik" differs from Volksmusik like a Dixie-Chicks-Song differs from an old cowboy song, while "Lieder" means the high-class art songs written mostly in the 19th century.These terms should be separated carefully. Sorry, my english isn´t good enough to do it on my own. --220.127.116.11 12:59, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
Harmonica in this style
Hi! I must edit something in this article, because term Harmonica in german Harmonika means Accordion. Also, I listen Volksmusic and normal Harmonica, who persons uses in Blues or Country music isn't used in German Volksmusik. Every musical instruments are good write in this article, but with this accordion no. I have edited It. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cassa342 (talk • contribs) 15:48, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
