Following the collapse and ultimate overthrow of the Wilhelmine Empire, a new generation of artists found a fresh environment where they might flourish. Their optimism was accompanied by attempts to negate their recent past in various ways: by affirming modern technology, exploring music of a more remote past, and celebrating popular music. The essays contained in this volume address these fundamental issues. Examining the way in which German music was performed, staged, programmed, and received in the 1920s not only offers deeper insights into Weimar culture itself but sheds light on our contemporary musical world.
