In the 1920s, jazz took off, sexuality was loose, drugs and alcohol flowed like water, and the rich became even more hedonistic than ever. Life was so colorful that it inspired a whole generation of artistic movements like Bauhaus, Art Deco, Cubism, and Expressionism. This was truly the Jazz Age. While Ravel was writing his famous Sonata for Violin and Piano with the iconic Blues movement, Webern was stretching the limits of tonal expression into the realms of atonality, and Korngold was writing ultra-Romantic music fit for Hollywood. Meanwhile, halfway across the globe, Prokofiev wrote music inspired by Jewish folk-themes while he was in New York, and Gershwin penned some of the most iconic 1920s jazz songs that are still enjoyed to this day. In October 1929, all the glitz came crashing down as the economy took a downward spiral into the abyss.
