musical history

 

 

In the present musical topography of Germany's capital, the 20th century dominates. To its early musical history (16th -17th c.) only one address refers (> 1.51); from the musically flourishing era of Frederic the Great and the 19th c. are more traces to find, but we miss the beautiful house of the Mendelssohns in the Leipziger Straße, centre of home concerts (destroyed). Many music temples from the late 19th c. disappeared, incl. the important Kroll-Oper in Tiergarten; the old Philharmonie where Bülow, Nikisch, Furtwängler conducted made place for the remarkable tent-like 'Circus Karajani'. The renowned Stern'sche Konservatorium (1850) was incorporated in the Hochschule in 1869.
The peak of Berlin‘s musical life, the early 20th century and the ‘roaring‘ 1920s offers the most clues, both in serious music (Schreker, Schönberg, Hindemith, Busoni) and in entertainment (M. Dietrich, Comedian Harmonists, etc.). The two worlds came together in the music of Kurt Weill and in the cabaret Überbrettl (1901-02) at which Schönberg and Oscar Straus cooperated. Many houses of the leading figures carry a plaque, often made by the 'Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur'.
After 1933 the loss of many composers, performers and teachers, the severe war damages and the division west-east (BRD-DDR) until 1990 caused much problems, but the musical life retained an exceptionally high level.
