CULTURAL YEARS - Series / Programme Description:

“Cultural Years” was a seven-part radio series which discussed “Music, the Arts and Society around the time of seven of the great 19th- and 20th-century International Exhibitions” (see below). In examining the ideas which lay behind all of the arts in a given era – in fashion, architecture and landscaping, interior decoration, fine and decorative art, literature, philosophy, social theory and music – I was able to discover the similar aesthetic principles determining the production of works of art, and especially music, as part of the complete picture of Western cultural history during the period, following Professor Warren Allen’s statement that ‘One disappointing, although tacit assumption is that the history of music can be divorced from contemporary events’, and the comment of social music historian, Henry Raynor: ‘With all a reflection’s power of candid criticism, music and art mirrors the real face of the society to which it belongs’. Thus I have attempted to promote the appreciation of all the arts of the recent past by illustrating the connection between them, in order to redress the imbalance caused by modern specialization.
