Sample text

Die Musik war Mode; also stürzte sich jedermann aus manischem Zwang auf die Musik. Gewiß, es gab ein paar politische Salons, die Thiers und Guizot noch über Meyerbeer und Rossini stellten; und es gab auch einige Enklaven, in denen so gute Musik gemacht wurde, daß man wohl glauben durfte, sie werde rein um ihrer selbst willen betrieben. Bei Madame Orfila, der Fürstin Belgiojoso, der Gräfin Merlin und dem Deutschen Kalkbrenner spielten und sangen wirklich nur auserlesene Künstler. Aber die meisten Salons nahmen es nicht so genau, legten vielmehr einzig und allein Gewicht darauf, daß überhaupt etwas Musikalisches vonstatten ging.

Was den Konsumenten oft ein Greuel dünkte, war für die Produzenten selber ein unschätzbarer Gewinn. Hatten sie erst einmal Zutritt zu einer der musikalischen Soireen erlangt, die fast in jeder Vom Salon zum Konzertpodium 57 bemittelten oder gar reichen Familie stattfanden, so wurden sie durch den Salonbetrieb hindurchfiltriert und kamen am andern Ende als öffentliche Virtuosen auf dem Konzertpodium heraus. Dieser Prozeß wickelte sich nahezu automatisch ab und verlief in so festen Formen, daß Flotow über ihn in einem Tone berichten konnte, als teile er ein Kochrezept mit.

Es wäre nicht überraschend gewesen, wenn sich Offenbach auf den Cancan wie auf eine Beute gestürzt hätte, die für ihn bereit lag, die nur von ihm ergriffen zu werden brauchte. Wer anders als er verschaffte diesem Tanz im Zweiten Kaiserreich die unermeßliche Popularität, veranlaßte mittels beflügelter, elektrisch geladener Galopps sämtliche Reifröcke dazu, in einem atembeklemmenden Tempo herumzuwirbeln und sich hoch und höher zu heben? Bemächtigte sich aber der reife Künstler bewußt des Cancans, so Rebecca 45 mußte sich der Anfänger - die Wahrscheinlichkeit sprach dafür bereits instinktiv zu ihm hingezogen fühlen.
