    Smile Entartete music (Degenerate)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degenerate_music

    I love this music! Franz Schreker, Alexander Zemlinsky, Kurt Weil and others...They also composed many operas.

    Please tell us your experiences, your tastes...

    As the article is in obvious need of citation and references I'd not pay any attention to it whatsoever. Such is the mess that is vomitted up on Wikipedia and profered as fact, foolish the person who reads it and believes.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.

    If you were really interested I'd tell you what I know...But I don't think you are interested in it...Your other interventions were always mocking...In my opinion, you are not willing to learn anything from me...you already know everything and that is perfectly ok...You can look for it in another sites, they are key composers. As you can see...I'm learning to read between lines...(as you have suggested)...I am an open minded guy...I'll continue learning all my life...

    http://holdekunst.com/degenerate-music/ seems to be a serious site...

    some relevant excerpts:

    Entartete Musik (“degenerate music” in German) is the epithet invented by the Nazi regime for music they deemed ideologically (or ethnically) objectionable.



    Web Resources

    Degenerate Music (Teacher’s Guide to the Holocaust)
    Nineteenth-century psychologists introduced the term degenerate or entartete to describe any deviance or clinical mental illness. Later a broader definition was applied to include scientific literature (medical, biology and anthropology). By 1933 Hitler’s Third Reich referred to the mentally ill, communists, Gypsies, homosexuals and Jews as subspecies of the human race…

    Then...those composers were Jewish: Mahler, Zemlinsky, Schreker, Weil were the main representatives of this "segregation".

    To be followed.

    Since this is the Opera Forum Thread I must add my $0.03 cents worth - Das Wunder der Heliane by Erich Wolfgang Korngold is as ultrahyper-romantic as they come - So much shamelessly schmaltzy ooze, and so wonderfully orchestrated to boot
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Indeed, this opera is wonderful!..schmaltzy ooze, I don't understand the meaning of this...Of course he composed many other beautiful operas, his first one, Violanta is refreshing....Der Ring des Plykrates and Die Kathrin are less good but still

    This guy was lucky because he went to USA and started composing sound tracks...Zemlisnky and Schreker died in their mysery.

    Schmaltzy ooze: Like a thick honey-amber goo that is sticky like heck and ultrasweet too - N.B. my transliteration of the term
