War Music: Notes From The First World War

War Music at the Royal Academy of Music will look at the role of music in the First World War in an exhibition held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of war. In the war, music was heard on battlefields, concerts halls, camps and churches, reflecting the emotions of war such as pride, nationalism, sorrow, consolation. The exhibition will feature a host of popular songs as well as items such as a gramophone, used in the trenches and camouflaged to avoid detection. It will be accompanied by a lively programme of musical events.
