This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the history of Jewish musicians in late Russian Empire. It considers the broader Jewish musical legacy in one of the most important Russian–Jewish cultural encounters of the twentieth century: the post-World War II friendship of composers Dmitri Shostakovich and Mieczyslaw Weinberg. The chapter also discusses the lives of actual Russian Jewish musicians who looked past conventional politics and religion to culture as the foundation of modern Jewish identity.

Keywords:   Jewish musicians, late Russian Empire, Jewish musical legacy, Dmitri Shostakovich, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Russian Jewish musicians, modern Jewish identity
