Insights Day: The Weimar Republic (1919 - 33)

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Find out more about this exciting and dangerous period in the history of Germany – a time of wild experimentation when new movements in music, art, architecture and film flourished.

Hosted by Weimar Berlin: Bittersweet Metropolis series advisor Gavin Plumley, this session surveys the music of Berg, Hindemith and Weill, as well as the work of the Bauhaus, the city's gay subculture and the lure of Berlin for British writers and artists.

Speakers include Peter Parker (Isherwood) and Theresia Enzensberger (Blueprint).

Discussions are interspersed with live music from the Philharmonia's MMSF Fellows.
