The Last Century
Music by 20th-century composers.
Hans Werner Henze #1
The first part of the diptych on composer Hans Werner Henze (1-7-1926/27-10-2012). Henze was an all-rounder. Atonality and serialism were combined with neoclassicism and influenced by Arabic music and jazz. It did not bother him to incorporate his political opinions in his music, as is reflected in his later works.
