In 1919 most of that empire was "lost": not just Hungary, but Bohemia, Moravia, Slovakia, Galicia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia. What was left was the tiny German rump which became the Austrian Republic. And of course Vienna did remain a cultural, musical centre but many of the composers who remained were Jewish and many of these found employment across the political border in Weimar Germany.

Very well put, and thank you for this highly apposite viewpoint.

A thought that has been with me recently:Whatever happened to Austrian music?

If asked this question, my immediate reply would include HK Gruber, of course Smiley
