Germany at War

Part of Radio 3's WWI season, Music in the Great War.

Penny Gore explores some of the music written by German composers during the First World War. Contrasting works by Reger and Eisler are followed by Stephan's Music for Orchestra and an extract from Braunfels' luxuriously scored Te Deum. The afternoon is rounded off with a performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio espagnol.
