 [No title]
Karl Mannheim was born in Budapest, studied at the universities of Budapest, Berlin, Paris and Freiburg.
Mannheim also stressed the levelling effects of educational experience: he did not confront the possibility that cultural participation itself, while 'loosening up' the established class structure and distancing intellectuals from their economic class moorings, may coagulate into new forms of cultural property which engender new class-like interests and novel forms of social closure and inequality.
Mannheim envisaged a new type of party system 'in which the right to criticize is as strongly developed as the duty to be responsible for the whole', with which would go a new form of education and a new sociologically informed morality.

 Mannheim   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
While Habsburg Vienna presents a truly imperial diversity of symphonic activity, Mannheim stands at the opposite pole in its concentration of talent and energy in a single electoral court, a single orchestra and, at least initially, a single individual, Johann Stamitz (1717-57).
The orchestral effects typically associated with Mannheim were actually more of Italian origin [particularly in opera], but the expert ensemble of the Mannheim Kapelle, particularly when playing Mannheim symphonies specifically composed to exploit these effects, created the strong impression that Mannheim was the centre of a new and distinctive style.
The predilection at Mannheim for striking dynamic effects doubtless finds its best explanation in the superlative quality of the Mannheim orchestra; the renowned precision of execution of this orchestra, as well as its large size, served to foster such a compositional approach.

During the second half of the 18th century Mannheim, as residence of Karl Theodor, was one of the most flourishing seats of the arts and sciences.
The growing use of crescendo and diminuendo around the middle of the century was one symptom of a trend toward attaining variety within a movement by means of gradual transitions; Baroque movements had either kept to a uniform dynamic level or else introduced distinct contrasts, as in the concerto.
The Mannheim School of composers was of great significance to the development of the Viennese classical style and of orchestral technique.
