NOTES: The cataclysm of the first World War and the events leading to the second one had a profound effect on music. Stravinsky's work expresses his shock at the barbarism just beneath the veneer of civilized society. Joplin's rag spearheaded the exploration of jazz and its influence on Stravinsky, Hindemith, Prokofiev and Milhaud. Gershwin's an American in Paris and Weill's Threepenny Opera show us different aspects of Europe between the wars. Bartók wrote some of his greates work in exile. Shostakovitch's "Leningrad" Symphony is a tribute to those who died during one of the bloddiest episodes of a bloody war.
