La pratique musicale savante dans quelques communautes juives en Europe aux XVIIe–XVIIIe siecles

Author

Covers the emergence of the practice of Western Art Music in European Jewish communities (Italy, Southern France, Amsterdam) prior to the nineteenth century. Includes detailed descriptions of the repertoires, their contexts of performance and their composers. This work manifests the implicit desire of Jewish music scholars to inscribe a Jewish presence in the predominant Christian and Eurocentric music narrative of modern Musicology.
