Music and Ideology in Cold War Europe by Dr. Mark Carroll
Book DescriptionThis book places the radicalization of art music in early post-war France in its broader socio-cultural and political context. It pursues two general and intersecting lines of inquiry. The first details the stances towards musical conservatism and innovation adopted by cultural strategists representing Western and Soviet ideological interests at the onset of the Cold War. The second, which draws upon the commentaries of Theodor Adorno and Jean-Paul Sartre, recognizes that the Cold War generated a heightened political awareness amongst French musicians at the very time when the social relevance of avant-garde music had become the subject of widespread debate. The study considers the implications of the performance at L'Oeuvre du XXe siecle, an international arts festival staged in Paris in 1952 with the intention of discrediting socialist realism by means of two opposing musical types: neo-classicism (represented by Stravinsky's Symphony in C) and serialism (Boulez's Structures 1a).

Tours to Australia and New Zealand during the 1930s by de Basil's Ballets Russes mark a watershed in the cultural life of the two nations. Local artists rejoiced in the opportunity to learn about European high art firsthand, while audiences and the public were jolted from the conservatism that shrouded the post-Depression Antipodes.
