About the Author
THEODOR ADORNO was born in 1903 in Framkfurt, and he died in Switzerland in 1969. He received his doctorate in 1924 for a work on Husserl, and went on to study piano and composition in Vienna with Alban Berg and Eduard Steuermann. He then taught at the University of Frankfurt until the advent of National Socialism, when he moved first to England, later to the United States, joining the institute of Social Research.

Is it any wonder then that Adorno should go into paroxysms about the culture industry, when all English music is part of that industry - we don't do Ivory Tower music; we listen to and pay for what we enjoy, and if we don't like we commission something else, and that has been the case since music escaped from the Cathedrals to inhabit the Opera Houses and Concert Halls - the latter being our invention.
No one can stand Schoenberg - he of the two hundred year reich that ended in 1975; no one listens to Webern - not that there is much to listen to, and Berg is very much a marginal figure, whose only good tune was nicked from Bach - though for some reason which I have never understood we seem unable to get enough of Mahler.
Germans music - reminds me of the Munch picture The Scream.
