later life, he specifically rejected "elite" music, and wrote for amateur
groups. >>

What, pray tell, are Bauhaus principles and how do they impact on a musician?

Just how would Dadaism affect music composition or performance?

Speaking of didacticism, maybe you could be more didactic, Anton.

Thank you,
