Degenerate outside influences?

With the advent of the "New Music School" of Liszt and Wagner, Germans felt they were leading the world in music innovation, but was that true? When the arch German pianist Eugene D'Albert played some Debussy in the capital he was hissed for his trouble. On the Piano this Sunday Music from Exotic Berlin, where in the early twentieth century foreign composers were importing adventuresome music - with outside influences. And guess what, some of these new directions were appreciated by the normally conservative Berlin audiences.

Hear Exotic Berlin on the Piano this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC & KTXI.
