Fourteen illustrated talks by ROGER FISKE
13: Between the Wars
Much of the significant orchestral music written in the twenties and thirties was for comparatively small groups of performers. This was the result partly of a continuing reaction against the orchesti excesses associated with late Romantic music, and partly of economic conditions. The period also confronted players with music that was not merely difficult to play but also almost impossible to understand.
Produced by Peter Dodd
First broadcast December 28. 1966
