Silence, Exile and Cunning

Sunday 7 August 2005 19:15-20:00 (Radio 3)

What should a German artist do under the Nazis? Most who hated Hitler fled the country, but not the passionately pacifist and anti-fascist composer Karl Amadeus Hartmann. Clinging to his native Munich, Hartmann wrote anti-Nazi music to be hidden away in his bottom drawer or for performance outside Germany - and survived to tell the tale. In Hartmann's centenary year, Piers Burton-Page explores Hartmann's inner exile and what it meant for his whole life and work.

Duration:

45 minutes
