09/17/2019 | Lecture on Degenerate Music

Opderschmelz, Dudelange, Luxembourg

Degenerate Music was a label applied in the 1930s by the Nazi government in Germany to certain forms of music that it considered to be harmful or decadent. The Nazi government's concern for degenerate music was a part of its larger and more well-known campaign against degenerate art (German: Entartete Kunst). In both cases, the government attempted to isolate, discredit, discourage, or ban the works.

From the Nazi seizure of power onward, these composers found it increasingly difficult, and often impossible, to get work or have their music performed. Many went into exile (e.g., Arnold Schoenberg, Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith, Berthold Goldschmidt); or retreated into "internal exile" (e.g., Karl Amadeus Hartmann, Boris Blacher); or ended up in the concentration camps (e.g., Viktor Ullmann, or Erwin Schulhoff).

Like degenerate art, examples of degenerate music were displayed in public exhibits in Germany beginning in 1938. One of the first of these was organized in Düsseldorf by Hans Severus Ziegler, at the time superintendent of the Weimar National Theatre, who explained in an opening speech that the decay of music was "due to the influence of Judaism and capitalism".

Ziegler's exhibit was organized into seven sections, devoted to (Anon. 1938, 629):

  1. The influence of Judaism
  2. Schoenberg
  3. Kurt Weill and Ernst Krenek
  4. Minor Bolsheviks (Franz Schreker Alban Berg, Ernst Toch, etc.)
  5. Leo Kestenberg, director of musical education before 1933
  6. Hindemith's operas and oratorios
  7. Igor Stravinsky


In her lecture, Adrienne Haan goes into detail about the origins of this catastrophe, featuring certain artists. There will be a powerpoint presentation with music toward the end of the lecture, a Q&A session as well as a reception.

In cooperation with MemoShoah Luxembourg, Opderschmelz and the city of Dudelange.
