Eisler for the Present Age
In 2012, the 50th anniversary of Hanns Eisler’s death was the occasion at an international symposium for a review of the current Eisler research. The range of topics in this volume of more or less extensively revised symposium papers covers the analysis of various compositional and aesthetic aspects, especially from film music, via the historiographically-oriented survey of the stages of the composer’s biography (in Denmark, USA, Austria, Germany) to the general consideration of Eisler’s position in the past and the present. Investigating the history of the Eisler reception in Japan turns out to be real virgin territory.
