Song, Mirror of the World

Thirteen programmes that explore classic song, poetry set to music, as a prism for understanding culture and history

Presented by Thomas Hampson

(10) Forbidden Music, Silenced Voices

Germany was the land of classical music's most glorious achievements, but when Hitler came to power, he banned everything written by Jews. That included acknowledged masters like Mendelssohn and Mahler, and musicians whose reputations never recovered, like Karl Goldmark. Also on the list were promising composers forced to flee, such as Alexander Zemlinsky, and those who were murdered, including Pavel Haas and Viktor Ullmann
