Various Artists | Bauhaus Reviewed 1919-1933

The first audiobook CD to explore the highly influential Bauhaus school of art and architecture, which operated in Germany between 1919 and 1933.
The spoken word element centres on a revealing talk by Walter Gropius, the architect and theoretician who founded the Bauhaus in 1919. The CD also includes contributions from the school's third and final director, architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and teacher Josef Albers. All interviews are in the English language.
The music content of the CD features piano pieces written between 1919 and 1925 by six composers associated with the Bauhaus: Arnold Schoenberg, Josef Matthias Hauer, George Antheil, Stefan Wolpe and H.H. Stuckenschmidt. Several of these pieces reflect serialism and 12-tone technique; most are performed by Steffen Schleiermacher on piano.
With a generous running time of 72 minutes, the CD also features a deluxe booklet featuring archive Bauhaus images and detailed historical notes by James Hayward.
