Mark the Music: Jews, Music and Vennese Modernity

The role music plays in the cultural life of 19th and 20th century Vienna cannot be overemphasized.

This lecture will look at this world from the perspectives of Jews from Herzl to Freud to Mahler and ask why Jews were both welcomed into the musical world and yet were never quite at home in it. ‘Mark the Music’ is a means of understanding modern Jewish cultural sensibilities in a hostile cultural environment.

The final lecture in the series Jews, Politics & Austria, organised by the ACF London together with the Leo Baeck Institute London, is given by Sander L. Gilman, Distinguished Professor of the Liberal Arts and Sciences and Professor of Psychiatry at Emory University. He is the author or editor of over eighty books including his most recent edited volume Wagner and Cinema (with Jeongwon Joe, 2010).
