Forbidden Music

Michael Haas

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the works of Richard Wagner and the conditions of German-Jewish composers in the nineteenth century. It analyzes Wagner's 1850 polemic Judaism in Music and the works of Felix Mendelssohn, which showed a reverence for tradition that would become a feature of German- and Austrian-Jewish musical assimilation. The chapter also discusses Wagner's political and cultural legacy and the works of composers born during the early years of post-revolutionary Enlightenment, including Giacomo Meyerbeer and Ignaz Moscheles.

Keywords:   Richard Wagner, German Jewish composers, Judaism in Music, Felix Mendelssohn, musical assimilation, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Ignaz Moscheles
