Episode Info:

This somber edition continues the theme of composing music under authoritarian regimes, this time under the Third Reich. We listen to pieces written by numerous composers, some who survived World War II and some who did not. We begin with with Pavel Haas's powerful Study for Strings and then Hugo Distler's God is Our Sure Defense; neither composer survived though for different reasons. Next we listen to Kleines Konzert by Alfred Uhl, a composer and soldier who survived the war by working at a POW camp. Karl Amadeus Hartman was completely unknown during the war and later emerged as a major musical figure. We listen to his Concerto Funebre, as well as Anton Webern's Langsamer Satz, a composer who survived the war, but was killed accidentally soon after. contact the show at
