"Conway's book is an impressive feat, and a fine contribution to an ongoing debate."
-The Wagner Journal
David Conway traces the progress of Jews in the burgeoning early nineteenth-century European music industry, analysing dynamic changes in economics, politics and technology during this time. Investigating musical biographies of the famous, the neglected and the forgotten, this study presents a radical contextualisation of Wagner's infamous 'Judaism in Music'.
