BEETHOVEN IN THE BUNKER Musicians Under the Nazi Regime

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Grover Gardner

History • 6.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Hitler loved serious music and hated the Jews, so he had a conflict: The best composers and performers in Germany and around the world were Jewish. Students of German history and classical music during the Third Reich will be fascinated by the diverse ways Nazi authorities and notable musicians of the times danced around this conflict so that the country's music culture could be preserved. Narrator Grover Gardner performs with genuine engagement, a broad pitch range, and a rich lower-register voice. With the dignified sound of his slower pacing and his clear pronunciation of English and foreign words, he keeps the focus on the human conflict and interesting personalities, rather than letting the unspeakable injustices of the times dominate the tone of this audiobook.
