Music in Berlin
Since the 18th century Berlin has been an influential musical center in Germany and Europe. First as an important trading city in the Hanseatic League, then as the capital of the electorate of Brandenburg and the Prussian Kingdom, later on as one of the biggest cities in Germany it fostered an influential music culture that remains vital until today. Berlin can be regarded as the breeding ground for the powerful choir movement that played such an important role in the broad socialization of music in Germany during the 19th century. Under his successor Frederick William I — , musical life in Berlin lost part of its splendor, due to his focus on the military strengthening of Prussia.
Berlin in detail. For centuries, Berlin was largely eclipsed by Vienna, Leipzig and other European cities when it came to music. In East Germany, a key figure was Hanns Eisler, composer of the country's national anthem. Cabaret may have been born in s Paris, but it became a wild and libidinous grown-up in s Berlin. Jazz was the dominant sound, especially after American performer Josephine Baker's headline-grabbing performances at the Theater des Westens dressed in nothing but a banana skirt. The most successful Schlager singing group was the a cappella Comedian Harmonists, who were famous for their perfect vocal harmonies, which sounded like musical instruments. Friedrich Hollaender was also a key composer in the cabaret scene, noted for his wit, improvisational talent and clever lyrics. Like so many other talents including Weill and Brecht , Hollaender left Germany when the Nazis brought down the curtain, and continued his career in Hollywood.
