The fame of the Bauhaus extends well beyond solid walls and furniture design. The Bauhaus Band, founded by Andor Weininger, a mural painting and design student in Weimar, was a small jazz group made up of design and architecture students from the Weimar and Dessau schools. T. Lux Feininger garnered worldwide acclaim through his photography of the band, in which he played clarinet from 1928-1929. Folk melodies from Russia and Hungary served as musical inspiration for the Bauhaus Band.
