The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Music

The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Music was a BBC Four documentary directed by Ian McMillan and produced by Fresh One Production for BBC Four.

The first episode The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Music looks at the shift in the language and sound of music from the beautiful melodies and harmonies of the giants of classical music such as Mozart, Haydn and Brahms into the fragmented, abstract,discordant sound of the most radical composers of the new century – Schoenberg, Webern, Stravinsky and beyond.

The Sound and the Fury: A Century of Music examines how this new music, which can perplex and upset even the most contemporary of audiences, was a response to the huge upheaval in the world at the start of the 20th century – with its developments in technology, science, modern art and the tumult of the First World War.
