“…was an Musik des Nordens nur nordisch maskiert ist." Konstruktion und Rezeption "nordischer" Musik im deutschsprachigen Musikdiskurs

Geisler, Ursula LU (2003) In Sprache und Politik im skandinavischen und deutschen Kontext 1933-1945 (= Schriften des Centers für deutsch-dänischen Kulturtransfer; 5)
Abstract
The article analyses the Nazi socialist construction of "Nordic Music" and gives examples of it's use in the years 1933-1945. It focusses on the funktionalization of musicians and composers of the Nordic countries by the Nazis and on the politization of musical ideas. In order to create and to uplift a worldwide image of German cultural superiority the semantics of Nazi music terminology changed. "Nordic music" was connotated on a rasist ground and the change of it's use can be seen as one idealtypical example for the Nazi socialist influence on the scientific discourse.
