Beschreibung

Following the collapse of the Wilhelmine Empire in Germany, a new generation of artists found a fresh environment where they might flourish. Their optimism was accompanied by an equally powerful distrust of the immediate past, for post-romanticism - and ultimately expressionism - served as symbols of a bygone era. Composers, performers, and audiences alike sought to negate their recent past in various ways: by affirming modern technology (electronic or mechanical music, sound recordings, radio, and film), exploring music of a more remote past (principally Baroque music), and celebrating popular music (particularly jazz). The essays contained in this volume address these fundamental themes. Examining the way in which German music was performed, staged, programmed, and received in the 1920s, they not only offer deeper insights into Weimar culture itself but shed light on our contemporary musical world.

Pressestimmen

"[The book is] alive to the extraordinary contradictions and inconsistencies which ran through the Western world's most intensely developed musical culture as it weathered the upheavals of Weimar radicalism and Nazi manipulation....[It] is an exceptionally interesting collection of essays which open out into discussions of major aesthetic questions, of the political and economic pressures bearing on music and theatre, of the works produced and, to a lesser extent, issues of their dissemination and reception." Patrick Carnegy, Times Literary Supplement
