Description: In Austria, enthusiasm for war and violent patriotism appear to be very characteristic of the first months of World War I and this recital provides examples of this initial phase of enthusiasm in Viennese musical and cultural life. For German-speakers, there are also 26 minutes of excerpts of writings by the great Austrian author Karl Kraus, one of the early and harsh critics of the war. German song texts. Csongor Szántó (baritone), Karin Wagner (piano), Franz Schuh (recitation).
