Program 9: The Great War and Its Echoes

Song proclaims the patriotism that greeted the start of World War I, and the tragedy that followed, as expressed by composers on both sides of the Atlantic. In the unstable years of peace after 1918, we use the lens of song to examine Surrealism, jazz, and the growing influence of mass technology, plus compelling figures like Josephine Baker and Gertrude Stein.
