Exploring the globalization of music

Historian Harry Liebersohn explores the globalization of culture as exemplified by music. He argues that technological innovations of the early twentieth century dramatically expanded music’s horizons by making global developments accessible to both producers and consumers for the first time. Berlin-based scientists, scholars, musicians, and businessmen played no small part in this transformation.
