Soviet Music

Soviet Music: Socialist Realism 1932-41

THY Tuesdays 1015-1215 fortnightly from 14th Jan
Tutor: Terry Metheringham

We’ll be exploring Soviet music from 1932, when the artistic doctrine of Socialist Realism was introduced, to 1941 when the Nazi invasion changed the cultural focus. Most of this music has disappeared from our standard repertoire.
It reflects the Soviet programme to build a new society: phenomenal industrial development and massive cultural change with the objective of engineering a new Soviet patriotism.
In some of this music we will hear an aversion to modernism, a surprising return of Russian nationalism and a drift back to the musical style of the late nineteenth century.
