Insights Day: The Weimar Republic (1919 - 33)

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

At an Insights event with the Philharmonia Orchestra, find out more about this exciting and dangerous period in the history of Germany.

The Weimar Republic was a time of wild experimentation when new movements in music, art, architecture and film flourished.

Hosted by Weimar Berlin: Bittersweet Metropolis series advisor Gavin Plumley, this session surveys the music of Berg, Hindemith and Weill, as well as the work of the Bauhaus, founded in 1919, and the lure of Berlin for British writers and artists.

Discussions are interspersed with live music from Philharmonia players and young artists.
