Product description

Review

"A tragic and epic story that Haas relates so magisterially well that this book will probably remain definitive on its subject for the foreseeable future."-Booklist, starred review Booklist "A valuable compendium of untold stories, a corrective to standard histories of music and an essential reference point for anyone engaged in the culture and politics of the twentieth century."-Norman Lebrecht, Wall Street Journal -- Norman Lebrecht Wall Street Journal "An outstandingly fine piece of work."-Terry Teachout, Commentary -- Terry Teachout Commentary "A richly detailed history of Jewish musicians."-Kirkus Kirkus Reviews "[T]his compelling exploration of the role Jewish musicians and composers played in the cultural life of the Prussian and Austro-Hungarian Empire... is rich in unexpected facts and quotes... Its greatest virtue is the unearthing of composers, critics, conductors and musicians destined for obscurity. Haas makes a pleasingly detailed argument for honouring a treasure trove to which the development of Western music owes a considerable debt."-Rebecca K Morrison, The Independent -- Rebecca K. Morrison Independent "This is a big and important book...that really must be read by anyone with even a passing interest in the music of this period. One closes it with a mixture of astonishment and admiration."-Peter Franklin, Opera Magazine -- Peter Franklin Opera Magazine Winner in the 2014 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence for the best historical Research in Classical Music category. -- ARSC Awards for Excellence Association for Recorded Sound Collections "Michael Haas makes [his] case powerfully in his important book."-James Loeffler, The New Republic -- James Loeffler The New Republic
