“War and Peace”

Paul Hindemith – Mathis der Maler

Aaron Copland – An Outdoor Overture

Joseph Haydn – Symphony No. 103 (“Drumroll”)

Featuring music from the 1930s and the 1790s, Thalia Symphony Orchestra’s April concert asks the question: what is the role of the artist in times of political turmoil and social upheaval?

Aaron Coplands (1900-1990) Outdoor Overture from 1938- the same year as the Anschluss (Nazi Germanys occupation of Austria) and the Munich Agreement (beginning the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia)- is a wakeup-call to America.

Paul Hindemiths (1895-1963) monumental symphony Mathis der Maler (Matthias the Painter) from 1934- the year Hitler officially became Führer- was denounced by the Nazis as degenerate after one performance and banned. A kind of sketch for the full opera Mathis der Maler, the three movements are inspired by panels of the Isenheim Altarpiece by Matthias Grünewald (c. 1475-1528).

Written in London, Joseph Haydns (1732-1809) Symphony No. 103 in E-flat major from 1795- in the middle of the wars following with the French revolution- opens with a terrifying timpani roll (hence the nickname Drumroll for this symphony) that surely audiences must have understood as an echo of the violence occurring on the Continent and a foreshadowing of worse to come.
