9780853036135: Composers of Classical Music of Jewish Descent

This important book attempts to analyze the reasons for the predominance in classical music of composers of Jewish descent while highlighting their role within the production of works of significant importance, particularly over the last two hundred years. Written in two parts, the larger second section provides an invaluable compilation of biographical sketches for over 250 composers of Jewish descent; some are well known as composers, for example, Mendelssohn, Mahler, Schoenberg, Copland and Gershwin, others are better known as performers or conductors, for example, Klemperer, Schnabel, and yet others are often not generally identified as of Jewish descent, for example, Finzi. Each composer entry has a brief bibliography. The book contains an extensive glossary of Hebrew and musical terms.

Book Description Vallentine Mitchell, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 384pp, plates, text figures, maps. 'The contribution of Jewish composers to Western classical music over the past two centuries has been disproportionately significant. This book's first part gives a brief history of Jewish music and considers reasons, such as improvements in civil rights, which led to this flowering of talent; part two comprises brief biographies of over 250 composers with at least one Jewish grandparent, from the well-known Mendelssohn, Mahler and Kurt Weill to more obscure figures such as Castelnuovo-Tadesco and Carl Tausig'.
