Forbidden Music

Michael Haas

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the works of Jewish composer Gustav Mahler, who it suggests was the musical personality who would provide hundreds of twentieth-century Jewish composers. It discusses how Mahler broke down the barriers that subsequently allowed younger Jewish composers to surge forward with their own ideas and agendas and provided an inheritance of such undeniably great and original music that reconversion to Judaism could be understood as an act of defiance. The chapter also describes his relationship with Erich Wolfgang Korngold.

Keywords:   Gustav Mahler, musical personality, Jewish composer, Judaism, Erich Wolfgang Korngold
