A Musical Migration

(p.99) Chapter 6 A Musical Migration
Forbidden Music

Michael Haas

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the so-called musical migration of Jewish composers during World War I. It explains that Austria was considered to be the country with the most music residing in its soul, and that its population was reduced to just 6,420,000 by 1919. The chapter discusses the work of Franz Schreker, who developed beyond the sensually woven Jugendstil textures of his earlier operas and became more abrasively dissonant, and also the works of new objectivist Ernst Toch.

Keywords:   Jewish composers, musical migration, Austria, Franz Schreker, Jugendstil, operas, Ernst Toch, new objectivist
