Music from the Weimar Republic

All That Jazz
Music from the Weimar Republic

100 years on from the founding of the Weimar Republic in Germany, we celebrate a remarkable period of creativity.

The Weimar Republic was founded 100 years ago in 1919. From the aftermath of war emerged the “Golden Twenties”, an outpouring of artistry that spawned the Bauhaus movement, allowing street theatre to flourish, and cabaret and jazz music to thrive. Composers such as Hindemith, Hanns Eisler and Ernst Krenek soaked up the jazz they heard in the bars of Berlin and made it their own. Even the young Russian Dimitri Shostakovich was drawn into to this new and exciting world.

Under the direction of Roger Benedict, the Sydney Symphony Fellows and guest musicians from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music perform a program that recreates the dazzling colour and creativity of an amazing era.

Door sales available at the venue on the day from 2pm.

 

Presented by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music
