The establishment of the West German contemporary music infrastructure between 1945 and 1955: individuals, institutions and ideologies


Lecture by Ian Pace

In his lecture and on basis of various archive material, that has not been published so far, Ian Pace focusses on the developement of a first infrastructure in the field of contemporary music after World War II (such as through festivals, summer academies or radio programmes) as well as on the roles of a few decision makers and the establishment of certain composers, who in sequence also shaped the developement of certain aesthetics and still make an impact on the music scene nowadays.
