Anton Rubinstein and the Rise of the Russian Jewish Musician
This chapter examines the role of Anton Rubinstein in the rise of Russian Jewish musicians. It analyzes what his life and art may reveal about Jews, Russians, and music in the nineteenth century, and traces the effects of his own personal dilemmas of identity on his views of music and nationalism. The chapter also argues that Rubinstein's quest to reconcile art and religion, Judaism and Christianity, and East and West reflected a novel expression of a hybrid Russian Jewish identity which deserves to be reconsidered in the context of Russian and Jewish history.
