Life Long Learning: Music in the 1940s: War and Peace

Part of the Life Long Learning Series:

Music in the 1940s: War and Peace
Instructor: Maestro Robert Butts

The 1940s could be divided into two very different periods: The War Years 1940-1945 and the post-war years 1945-1950. The period was marked by major transitions in technology, transportation, economy, politics, and entertainment. The war years were marked by the continuation of The Swing Era with the popularity of the big bands. After the war, jazz moved to a new style called “Cool” and the popularity of the big bands switched to the popularity of individual singers. Country music developed a more urban audience and became country music as it developed afterward. Film scores continued to feature both older composers like Max Steiner and younger composers like Bernard Herrmann. In the classical music world, there was a tendency towards ultra-modernism. The Broadway musical began what came to be known as its Golden Age.
