Degenerate Music: The Music of Weimar Berlin
After World War I, Weimar Berlin was a cauldron of artistic ferment as avant-garde artists and intellectuals, most of them Jewish, struggled to create a modern German culture. Exuberant freedom and hectic experimentation masked a sense of impending doom. After 1933, Hitler denounced them all as degenerate and their forced exile carried Weimar modernity to the rest of the world. A re-creation of this fascinating and pivotal era with cabaret and chamber music of Weill, Schoenberg and Eisler, together with photographs and film of the period.
Presented in association with The Goethe-Institut San Francisco & The Mendocino Music Festival
