Abstract:
This document presents a holistic view of the saxophone in Germany from 1924 to 1935. A "wide field" view is presented in order to examine the saxophone within its social and historical contexts. Chapter One contains a general political and cultural history of Germany and a description of the saxophone in Germany before 1924. Chapter Two offers a definition of jazz in Germany and surveys the music's prominent saxophonists. Chapter Three documents and interprets portrayals of the saxophone in literature, art, and the press that might clarify its position within German society at the time. The instrument's journey through the turbulent period of Hitler's early government is followed. Chapter Three ends with a discussion of the references to the saxophone in the writings of philosopher Theodor W. Adorno. Finally, Chapter Four examines the role of the saxophone in the medium of serious concert music in Germany between the two World Wars.
