These five come courtesy of Mogens Madsen and Bart Diels, to add to our original collection pack.
First, that Danish racer Carl Nielsen…
followed by Mr & Mrs Paul Hindemith in an open top (she won’t give up the wheel),
Roberto Gerhard out for a ride with his brother,
and Hans-Werner Henze in a getaway car after the riotous 1968 première of his oratorio ‘Das Floß der Medusa’, dedicated to Che Guevara. The RiasKammerchor refused to sing under a red flag, the librettist Ernst Schnabel was thrown through a glass door and the police led a baton charge. The concert was cancelled. The photo shows Henze making his escape.
