The richly endowed Barmen Chess Association commemorated its 40th year anniversary with a celebration centered around two major tournaments and three strong "Hauptturnieren". The innovative organizers added such melodious entertainment as a "Singspiel" involving a 60-person chorus, and a three-act musical comedy, "Der Seekadett." The latter featured a game with children as chessmen and an original musical score, the now-famous "Barmen Chess Waltz"
