Editorial Reviews


"This interesting and informative collection of essays on music in Germany between the world wars is both readable and scholarly....This informative collection of essays is strongly recommended to anyone interested in German culture, music, or theater during this exciting intellectual period." W. Ross, Choice

"[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

Book Description

These essays examine the way in which German music was performed, staged, programmed, and received in the 1920s, offering insight into Weimar culture itself and shedding light on our contemporary musical world.
