ID : 1355   
« back to classes page
In the history of classical music, Jews initially became known as instrumentalists, primarily violin or piano virtuosi, and then as conductors, but there were relatively few prominent Jewish composers, most notably Felix Mendelssohn, Gustav Mahler and Arnold Schoenberg. However, in the last 100 years, a number of significant Jewish composers have emerged. Among the composers whose music and impact we will explore are: Leonard Bernstein, Ernest Bloch, Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Philip Glass, Osvaldo Golijov, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, György Ligeti, Darius Milhaud, André Previn, Steve Reich and Kurt Weill. We also will explore music of some of the composers who died in the Holocaust. We hope to attend a related concert. Study group members will be encouraged to do research, make presentations, and/or lead discussions.
