Challenging the Modern: Conservative Revolution in German Music, 1918-33

Publications • MusicHistory • Nicholas Attfield

A British Academy Monograph

This book challenges commonplace conceptions of musical conservatism during Germany's Weimar Republic (1918-1933). Its primary goal is to offer scrutiny of uncritical links often made by musicologists and historians between musical conservatism and political conservatism of the era. It does so through a critical and nuanced application of the term 'conservative revolution', as used throughout the Weimar era and popularised in its historiography after 1945.
