Loeffler's sophisticated and deeply researched book casts new light both on the Jewish contribution to music in general and to the emergence of specifically Jèwish music' in the Russian Empire, home to the largest and most vital Jewish community in the world." ""James Loeffler's new book is both fascinating and pathbreaking. This important and original contribution to scholarship must be read by students of music, Russian culture, and Jewish history."" "President of Bard College, and Music Director and Conductor of the American Symphony Orchestra and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra" "No image of prerevolutionary Russian Jewish life is more iconic than the fiddler on the roof. But in the half century before 1917, Jewish musicians were actually descending from their shtetl roofs and streaming in dazzling numbers to Russia's new classical conservatories. At a time of both rising anti-Semitism and burgeoning Jewish nationalism, how and why did Russian music become the gateway to modern Jewish identity? Drawing on previously unavailable archives, this book offers an insightful new perspective on the emergence of Russian Jewish culture."--Jacket." ;
