#20th century Tumblr posts

  • It’s Halloween week—a staff favorite here at Musica in Extenso! I don’t know about you, but when it comes to supernatural scaries, I’m on Team Ghost, basically anytime. I love the vengeful ghost, the tortured ghost, the angsty boyfriend ghost. Name the ghost, I’m here for it. So with that in mind, let’s take a ride together on Eric Whitacre’s Ghost Train, performed here by the Rutgers Wind Ensemble. This video only contains part 1 of the Triptych (”The Ride”), but all three parts are available on YouTube, so if you like this, it’s worth searching for the rest!

    Music for wind ensemble tends to get overlooked, since it’s mainly performed by school bands at various levels, and as the child of a former high school band director, I’m sure that’s why the sound of a wind ensemble feels so nostalgic to me. I bet that applies to many of you, too. 

    More spooky fun to come as the week continues! - Melinda Beasi 👻

    Geneviève Lantelme (1883-1911)

    Born as Mathilde Hortense Claire Fossey, she was a French stage actress socialite, fashion icon, and courtesan.

    At the age of fourteen, she wound up in a brothel run by her mother, and as a teenager, she was trafficked to powerful men, including Henry Poidatz, banker and owner of Le Matin newspaper, whose mistress she became in her late teens.

    She is considered by her contemporaries to be one of the most beautiful women of the Belle Epoque and bears a resemblance to American actress Ethel Barrymore.

    With Poidatz’ backing, Mathilde embarked on a stage career, taking as her stage name her mother’s maiden name, Lantelme, along with the first name, Geneviève.

    Poidatz recommended Lantelme to Alphonse Franck, the manager of the Théâtre du Gymnase in Paris, where she made her debut in a comedy called La Bascule.

    Several small parts followed, and in October 1903, Lantelme entered the Conservatoire de Paris to study acting, where she was taught by an actor from the Comédie-Francaise named Maurice de Féraudy.

    Although the students of the Conservatoire were technically not allowed to perform in theatres before they graduated, Lantelme continued to appear on Parisian stages during the period of her studies, under the name of “Telmy.”

    Lantelme completed her course of study without receiving any prizes or distinctions, as her comedic talent was not valued by her school or her teachers, and resumed stage appearances under the name of Lantelme.

    On April 1, 1905, Lantelme opened in a play called L’Age d’Aimer, whose leading role was played by the legendary actress Réjane.

    Upon hearing that her friend Alfred Edwards, a media tycoon and amateur playwright, had written a play named Par Ricochet and was looking for an actress, Réjane introduced him to Lantelme, who soon became his mistress.

    In September 1906, Lantelme signed a contract with the Théâtre Réjane, but she broke it in January 1908 because she was frustrated that Réjane was given all of the leading roles.

    Réjane sued Lantelme for breach of contract and won; the young actress had to pay 20,000 francs in damages, an enormous sum at the time.

    Despite this setback, 1908 was a turning point for Lantelme, because it was in this year that she finally landed a leading role in a hit play, starring in Le Roi.

    As a result of her success, she graced the covers of magazines like Le TheatreLes Modes, and Femina, and appeared on dozens of postcards.

    During her short career in the limelight, Lantelme was photographed often and featured in newspapers and magazines in both Europe and the United States. Celebrated for her fashion sense as well as her beauty, she frequently collaborated with Madeleine Vionnet and Jeanne Paquin to produce her memorable clothing ensembles.

    Lantelme was also known for her voluminous hats, as can be seen in the postcards and other images of her that are collected to this day.

    From 1906 to 1909, Lantelme shared Edwards’ attentions with his fourth wife, Misia Sert. 

    Misia was extremely jealous of her husband’s mistress, and said in her memoirs “I had contrived to get a photograph of Lantelme; it adorned my dressing-table, and I made desperate efforts to look like her, dress my hair in the same way, wear the same clothes." Marcel Proust used this as the model for Gilberte’s jealousy of Rachel and Saint-Loup in À la recherche du temps perdu.

    Eventually the younger woman won the battle for Edwards’ affections, and on July 5, 1909, Lantelme and Edwards married in Rouen, France.

    A few years later she would be known for the mysterious circumstances of her death: on the night of 24/25 July 1911, she fell from Edward’s yacht.

  •   In September 1, 1939 the Germans invaded Poland that was the cause of the start of WW2, the German Reich had supreme superiority over this country, the poles fought hard but with the use of good commanders and the famous Blitzkrieg tactic, the Germans took over this country in 26 days.

      On September 17, 1939 the Soviet Union agreed to help German Reich in their military campaign; so while the Germans fought in the Western Front, the Soviets fought in the Eastern Front. The allies where amazed by this event. When the Polish war ended in October 1939 when Warsaw surrendered Poland kept on fighting through 9 more days before capitulating, the Soviet Union and the German Reich decided to sign a non-aggression pact (the two countries won’t fight each other unless the pact is broken) known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

    The allies were concerned about this situation and declared war to the Axis… What will happen next?

  •   WW2 was a global war that lasted for 6 years (1939-1945). Many countries were involved in this war them being: China, Soviet Union, German Reich, Japan, France, Canada, United States of America, Ethiopia, United Kingdom, Korea, The Benelux Regions (Netherlands, Belgium), Luxembourg, The Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), Greece, Italy, Hungary, Austria, Philippines, Indonesia, and Poland.

      WW2 started because of the German invasion of Poland. The leaders of the Allies were France, United Kingdom, and the United States of America; the leaders of the Axis were Italy, Japan, and the German Reich.

      As a result of the war an approximate of 75-85 million people has died in the war, the Soviets took the largest loss (14 million people). This war has impacted the world and we hope that no other war like this one will ever happen again, although many rumors have showed up that China and USA are gonna declare war on each other, we must hope that doesn’t happen in a near future.

    La belle dame sans merci [fr.]

    The beautiful lady without mercy + details. 

    Frank Bernard Dicksee (1853-1928)

    Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. 

    Ca.1901. Oil on canvas.

    Bristol Museum and art Gallery (Bristol, United Kingdom)

    This is my favorite painting of the many inspired by John Keats’ poem of the same name. The lady is depicted as femme fatale and the knight keeps lamenting because she betrayed him, i don’t know, I think she stole his horse, good for her.
