Jewish women and their salons : the power of conversation by Emily D Bilski ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From their debut in Berlin in the 1780s to their emergence in 1930s California, Jewish women's salons served as welcoming havens where all classes and creeds could openly debate art, music, literature, and politics. This book is the first to explore the history of these salons where remarkable women of intellect resolved that neither gender nor religion would impede their ability to bring about social change." "Authors Emily D. Bilski and Emily Braun examine the lives of more than a dozen Jewish salonieres, charting the evolution of the salon over time and among cultures in cities including Berlin, Vienna, Paris, London, New York, and Milan."--BOOK JACKET

Vienna : Jews and the city of music, 1870-1938 ( Book )
11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This exhibition catalogue guides the visitor into Vienna, the city of music. The essays collected here seek to shed light on the role of the Jewish populations and the fin-de-siecle conflict between the avant-garde and the reactionaries and to show that contrary to traditional notions, Jews not always were to be found in the modernist camp. They also tell of the axis Vienna - Berlin during the interwar years and illuminate the Jewish-Austrian musical symbiosis, which in the end would turn out to have been no more than a dream: quasi una fantasia. We furthermore document the expulsion and murder of Jewish musicians between 1938 and 1945 and their work in exile. A critical look at Vienna after 1945 concludes the volume."--BOOK JACKET
Die ägyptische Helena by Richard Strauss ( Recording )
7 editions published in 2003 in 3 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deborah Voigt brings sumptuous vocalism and dramatic presence to the title role of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's re-imagination of the Helen myth. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, the story is based on the premise that the Helen who came to Troy was a phantom, while the real, faithful one was spirited away. After the war, she is reunited with her husband, Menelas, sung by Torsten Kerl. Diana Damrau is Aithra, the sorceress who helps Helen regain Menelas's love, and Wolfgang Brendel sings Altair, a desert chieftain who falls in love with Helen. Fabio Luisi conducts the ravishing score
Symphony no. 1 Symphony no. 6 ; Miserae by Karl Amadeus Hartmann ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1999 in German and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We want the light by Christopher Nupen ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This 2-DVD set is divided into three parts. Part one is a one hour film, We want the light, the title taken from a poem written by 12-year-old Eva Pickova, interned in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. It is about the complex relationship between Jews and German music, and about survival and the place of music in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. The second part of the DVD continues with nearly all the music from the film, not as background music as in the film, but in vision, shot in such a way so as to make it a reflection of the themes touched upon in the film, but this time without words. The third section includes interviews with musicians and three Holocaust survivors followed by Evgeniĭ Kisin's rendition of the slow movement of Brahm's F minor piano sonata
