Description
The intolerance of Adolph Hitler's regime toward modern classical music prompted many of Germany's greatest musicians to leave for the safety of America, where their influence would in many cases be magnified. Dorothy Lamb Crawford's history of the exodus that followed Russian émigré Igor Stravinsky to Los Angeles—and the artists' resulting culture shock—includes figures achieving a new degree of notoriety (Arnold Schoenberg and Kurt Weill), some who found artistic and financial success in the film industry (Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Franz Waxman), and others who found failure or disappointment (Hanns Eisler and Ernst Toch).
