Undying fascination: The music of the “Golden Twenties”

Our playlist shows how unconventional composition was in the 1920s: Kurt Weill wrote a song about the oil industry, Arnold Schoenberg wrote the music for a film that didn’t even exist, and Paul Hindemith put to paper what the overture to The Flying Dutchman might sound like in a performance by a bad spa band in the early morning. Pieces by Richard Strauss, Alban Berg and Ferruccio Busoni complete this colourful selection for the online festival “The Golden Twenties”.
