How can a highly artistic individual function professionally in so threatening a climate?"--BOOK JACKET. "Here, historian Michael H. Kater provides a detailed study of the often interrelated careers of eight prominent German composers who lived and worked amid the dictatorship of the Third Reich, or were driven into exile by it."--BOOK JACKET. "Kater weighs issues of accommodation and resistance to ask whether these artists corrupted themselves in the service of a criminal regime - and if so, whether this may be discerned from their music."--Jacket.
