BRAVE NEW WORLDS: OUT OF THE RUINS

“Thine only gift hath been the grave to those that worshipped thee”, was Byron’s excoriation of the French tyrant in his Ode to Napoleon. In 1941 Schoenberg used Byron’s ode to denounce another tyrant, Adolf Hitler. In Nazism’s abhorrent wake, the era’s most talented young composers attempted to rebuild something new and meaningful from the rubble. They ended up creating lasting beauties that commemorated the human catastrophe their generation had witnessed.
