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'.
