Fin de siècle Vienna
« on: March 28, 2021, 12:46:49 PM »
How, and why, are Johann Strauss, Jr., Carl Michael Ziehrer, Carl Millöcker, Franz Lehár etc. less and lesser representative(s) of Vienna around 1900 than Mahler and Schoenberg?

What is Music? How do you define it? Music is a calm moonlit night, the rustle of leaves in Summer. Music is the far off peal of bells at dusk! Music comes straight from the heart and talks only to the heart: it is Love!  --- Rachmaninoff
