Musical creation and mass


Tomás Marco-Aragón


This paper deals with the historical relationship existing between the musical Spanish avantgardes and the mass media. The author analyzes how the avantgardes musical movements were followed with interest by the magazines and newspapers during the 60s. The appearance of RNE (Radio Nacional de España) promoted the knowledge of these avantgardes. With the arrival of democracy, the orchestras appeared and then a new audience interested in classical music arose, but, due to the marketing, the musical spanish panorama has been trivialized, maybe because of the disinterest of the mass media.
