Extractions: RLIN ID BIOGRAPHY Conductor Anton Seidl was born in Pest, Hungary on 7 May 1850. His early years are unrecorded and some suppose him to be the natural son of Franz Liszt. In 1870 he entered the Leipzig Conservatorium where he studied music under Ernst Ferdinand Wenzel Oscar Paul and Ernst Friedrich Richter. In that same year he returned to Pest to pursue studies with Hans Richter a musician who had been assisting Richard Wagner in preparing the score of Die Meistersinger . Upon Richter's recommendation Seidl was engaged by Wagner in 1872 to help him in his work at Bayreuth where Seidl became a member of the Wagner household. He was empolyed in making the first copy of the Nibelungen score and during the six years he was with Wagner helped to complete the scores of Die Gotterdammerung and Parsifal . Wagner entrusted to Seidl many of the details of the first Bayreuth festival in 1876. In 1879 Seidl was appointed conductor at the Leipzig Opera House where in teh season of 1881-1882 he conducted the first performances of the nibelungen cycle ever heard in Berlin. The following season he was appointed conductor of the travelling Wagner Theatre with which he toured through England and most of Europe. In 1883 he became conductor of the Bremen Opera House. On 29 February 1884 he married Auguste Kraus a singer who had been associated with the Travelling Wagner Theatre.

Extractions: Photographer of the Declaration of the State of Israel Von Shlomo Sheva Life magazine . With the rise of Hitler, the Jewish photo-journalists were forced to flee. They were not press photographers, for the local newspapers lacked the technical means and the funds to use photos. However, they were international photo-journalists, for they documented newsworthy developments in Eretz Yisrael that were publicized throughout the world. Such developments were not lacking: the building of new settlements, violent riots, the arrival of immigrants from Europe, and the unfamiliar Arab milieu. The photos also documented the Zionist agenda, and in this sense they were "commissioned" photos, parallel to the Soviet-produced photographs that were commissioned to glorify Communism. Yet, they may also be compared to the photos of the great depression in the U.S., which were commissioned by the government to serve social needs. Rudi Weissenstein, born in Czechoslovakia in 1910, studied photography in Vienna and became a press photographer for a Prague newspaper. Arriving in Eretz Yisrael in 1936, he was immediately commissioned by various institutions to take pictures and within a few months time produced a body of documentary work of distinction.

Extractions: by Benjamin Ivry Outstanding Recent Historical Reissues Despite the woeful cries of the Gloomy Guses who pestiferate in the musical press, the classical CD is by no means dead, nor has it been "killed" by historic reissues. Vast areas of our precious musical past have yet to be uncovered, and a fascinating crop of recent reissues reminds us of a major benefit of listening to old records: we are confronted with past personalities and approaches, far from what is common coin in conservatories and concert halls today. The mysteries of past excellences need to be studied by all who have passed the stage of child prodigy, working on instinct alone. Some artists are especially alert to the vital importance of the past. Veteran violinist Ida Haendel has just released a new CD recital, accompanied by
Extractions: Editors' Introduction The typescript of this speech, given by Zygmunt (Sigismond) Stojowski (1870 -1946) on the occasion of the Polish Music Festival held in Carnegie Hall, New York, in the spring of 1944, is found in the Manuscript Collection of the Polish Music Center at USC. It was donated by Henry Stojowski, the composer's son, and was previously found in the Stojowski Collection at his home in Baldwin, Long Island, New York (the collection includes another typewritten copy). The sub-title is a quote from Ignacy Jan Paderewski's famous speech about Chopin, during celebrations of the 100th anniversary of his birth in 1910. The Stojowski typescript bears the following annotations: "From Cornelius H. Tuszynski, 16-18 West 46th Street, New York 19, N. Y.; Tel: BR 9-7144" in the upper left corner, and "News Release / Immediate" in the upper right corner. The text consists of four numbered pages. The address has never been published in its entirety, though a lengthy excerpt had appeared in an article entitled "Polish Music Festival at Carnegie Hall," in Stojowski's

Zubin Mehta And His World Class Orchestra Founded in 1936 as the Palestine Symphony, by the Polish violinist bronislaw huberman,the orchestra was specifically created to help Jewish musicians escape http://www.jewishjournal.com/old/zubinmehta.3.3.0.htm
Extractions: Israel Philharmonic Orchestra The Israel Philharmonic has always been an orchestra of immigrants. Founded in 1936 as the Palestine Symphony, by the Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman, the orchestra was specifically created to help Jewish musicians escape the Nazis. Many of the founding members, among the most accomplished German-Jewish musicians of their day, had already been forbidden to perform in Germany; most had been dismissed from their posts by the Reichsmusikkammer in 1933. Some 15 years later, renown conductor Leonard Bernstein led the refugees in concert on the sand dunes of Beersheba for 5,000 soldiers during the War of Independence. Since then, the history of the orchestra has been closely tied to the history of the Jewish state: Holocaust survivors joined the orchestra in the late 1940s; and conductor Zubin Mehta, now the IPO's music director for life, hastily left a Metropolitan Opera tour to catch the last plane to Tel Aviv during the Six Day War in 1967. When the 25-year-old Mehta first arrived as a guest conductor in 1961, he encountered only a straggling orchestra of central European emigres, he once told the Journal. Over the years, he hired more than 95 performers to create his own world-class symphony, one that was predominantly Sabra until the arrival of a more recent, and dramatic, emigration to Israel.

Extractions: But the Gibson Strad was stolen in 1919 from the Vienna hotel room of Polish virtuoso Bronislaw Huberman. Though it was returned quickly, the cherished instrument disappeared again in 1936 from Hubermans dressing room while he was on stage at New Yorks Carnegie Hall. It stayed missing until 1985 when an amateur musician dying in jail confessed to the crime and told authorities where to find the ultra-valuable violin. Eventually it was returned to the insurer, Lloyds of London, which had paid Huberman $30,000 soon after the theft 50 years earlier. In 1988, Lloyd's sold the violin to British violinist Norbert Brainin for $1.2 million. When Joshua Bell appeared at a concert with Brainin, the older man let him play a few notes on the Strad. I thought it was the most amazing-sounding violin I'd ever heard," Bell recalls. So when the young virtuoso learned the storied instrument was about to be sold to a German industrialist, he convinced Brainin to sell the Strad to him, instead.

Finale ERICH WOLFGANG KORNGOLD: Born in Brünn, Moravia (today Brno, Czech Republic), May 29, 1897; died in Hollywood, California, November 29, 1957 No composer was more deserving of the moniker Wunderkind than Erich Wolfgang Korngold. He was already an accomplished pianist by the age of five. He composed a cantata at nine, a piano sonata at eleven, and a ballet at thirteen, which was performed by the Austrian Imperial Ballet by command of the Emperor Franz Joseph. By his mid teens he was producing orchestral works of lasting substance: the Schauspiel-Ouvertüre , commissioned and premiered by Arthur Nikisch, and the 45-minute Sinfonietta, first performed by no less than Felix Weingartner and the Vienna Philharmonic. Bruno Walter conducted a pair of short operas the lad had finished at sixteen. Before he was twenty, the likes of Schnabel, Cortot and Kreisler were programming his music on their recitals. Then there was the opera Die tote Stadt , first performed when Korngold was just twenty-three a huge success that played in over eighty theaters in its first season alone.
