Yale University Press

This chapter examines the conditions of Jewish composers during the age of liberalism, Johannes Brahms, and music critic Eduard Hanslick, discussing Brahms's association with the Liberal Party and highlighting the fact that he was accused of philo-Semitism in the German nationalist press. It also considers the work of Jewish pianist Ferdinand Hiller and how the musical triumvirate of Karl Goldmark, Hanslick, and Brahms evolved an amalgam of values in which both the purity of art and the purity of German musical traditions merged.

Keywords:   Jewish composers, liberalism, Johannes Brahms, Eduard Hanslick, philo-Semitism, Ferdinand Hiller, Karl Goldmark, German musical traditions
