The revolution of 1848–49 marks a turning point in history. Throughout Germany the middle classes, workers, peasants, artisans, students, and the lower middle classes rose up against the ruling feudal nobility in order to create a unified, democratic state. The songs of freedom from the revolutionary years 1848–49 – released on CD by WERGO – are the expression of the struggle against feudalism, and they reflect the events of the time, the hopes and disappointments of the struggling democrats.
