Kurt Weill Festival Dessau
Dear friends of the Kurt Weill Festival,
What could possibly connect such diverse figures as Walter Gropius, Lyonel Feininger, Charles Lindbergh and Kurt Weill? They all showed a willingness to explore new worlds; they all “dared to innovate”; and they all lived in an age in which every aspect of life was transformed, when the old world order was shaken to its core. Yet this dawning of the avant-garde was not only greeted with enthusiasm but also with rejection, with many clinging on to seemingly tried-and-trusted ideas. The wide-ranging cultural revolution also revealed sharp contradictions in a society that was deeply divided about the paths it wanted to take.
