READ: When Classical Composers Did the Fox Trot

Piano Music - KRENEK, E. / BENATZKY, R. / MITTLER, F. / GROSZ, W. / EISLER, H. (20th Century Foxtrots, Vol. 1: Austria & Czechia) (G. Wallisch)

During the inter-war period, in the cities of the West, a younger generation found ways to enjoy life in the form of dances such as shimmies, foxtrots, tangos and Charlestons: strong rhythms that became a symbol of a carefree and decadent era. The new jazz craze took hold everywhere, and Krenek’s opera Jonny spielt auf became an overnight sensation. The inter-war Zeitgeist in Vienna and the Czech lands is reflected in a programme full of première recordings—many of which were hits in their day—rich with fashionable dynamism, syncopation and joie de vivre.
