This first installment of the Accentus Music trilogy explains how music and the great composers were forever changed by the outbreak of World War I in 1914.
Music, Power and Revolution Part I. Music in the Time of the Great War
When the First World War broke out in 1914, the music world did not remain unaffected. Artists inevitably became involved, either as soldiers at the front or as composers of patriotic music or musical memorials to a lost world.
While Parts One and Two explore both the hopeful and subsequently tragic entanglements of art and politics to which so many artists fell victim during the First World War and the October Revolution, Part Three embarks on a search for the political aspects of music up to this day.
