0 Reviews
Despite his conversion to Protestantism in 1898, Schoenberg contemplated Jewish and biblical themes all his life. In this sympathetic and perceptive study, Ringer illuminates this religious aspect of the great composer's work, and shows how Schoenberg was both a religious artist and the product of an emancipated Central European Jewry.
