Thereafter, the views of the various forms of "modern music" of both nationalities are provided, then their even more rigid separation in time of the German occupation (1938-1945) before the expulsion of the German population after the Second World War, when a radical change entered the demographics of the country. With the subsequently necessary reorganization of cultural and music scene that glorious era ended in the history of the country, the Czechs and the Germans (and Austrians) had designed together. - Analytical and ethnological treatises on folk song of different ethnicities of Moravia complement the band.
