Wilhelm Furtwangler, Genius Forged in the Cauldron of War


www.classicalnotes.net/features/furtwangler.html
"The saga of how Furtwängler's incomparable artistry arose within the appalling abyss of Nazi Germany forces us to confront the terrible collision of art, society and morality."

 

  ...The second – unbridled emotion and improvisation – was forged in the hideous caldron of Nazi Germany.

   Great music never emerges from comfort, well-being and privilege. Rather, throughout the history of music, the finest work arises from the most trying of circumstances. All of the great artists – composers and performers – were tortured souls.

     Even Beethoven was a gifted but largely derivative composer until driven to the brink of suicide by deafness, the cruellest blow of all for a budding musician.   

     Like his idol, Furtwängler's art was fueled by the loss of his own most treasured possession: the stability of an absolute artist, sheltered from sordid social and political reality.

  Interesting, this site used the caldron in this story (without the letter u ), I never had seen it written like this before.

   And, talk about a caldron with all the features of one! pressure, trying circumstances and impasse!
