Ep. 39 - N&SH: World War I (Pt. 2)
Mar 24th, 2021 by Notes & Strokes
We hope you enjoyed our Prometheus episode as a break from world war - we know we needed it.
But now we return to our N&SH installment on World War 1 to discuss art and music that happened after the war. A lot of questions came out of the war, including how to respond to it in art and music. While some turned to the past, others pioneered new styles - all of which we'll see in this week's episode!
Max Ernst (1891-1976): Celebes (1921)
Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945): The Volunteers (Die Freiwilligen) (1921-1922, published 1923)
Otto Dix (1891-1969): The War (Der Krieg) (1929-1932)
William Grant Still (1895-1978): Darker America (1924)
Frank Bridge (1879-1941): Oration for Cello and Orchestra (1929-30)
Sergei Prokofiev (1891-1953): Piano Concerto No. 4 (1931)
Maurice Ravel (1875-1937): Piano Concerto for Left Hand (1929-30)
