Abstract

This chapter investigates the revival of cultural and scientific internationalism after the First World War. It does so by focusing on events in which music was the subject of transnational intellectual exchanges. Three cases illustrate the ways in which music was represented and used in such contexts: the international exhibition 'Musik im Leben der Völker', held in Frankfurt in 1927; the First International Congress of Popular Arts (1928), which took place in Prague with League of Nations backing; and, finally, several musical activities within the framework of the 1930 world's fairs at Antwerp and Liège. These events highlight the ambiguity that was intrinsic to both interwar internationalism and the discourse about music: namely simultaneous references to universal values on the one side and ideas about 'national culture' on the other.
