About this Event

A One-day Conference to Launch Polin: Studies in Polish-Jewry Vol. 32: ‘Jewish Musicians and Jewish Music-Making in the Polish Lands’

The astounding variety of music of all genres and styles produced by musicians of Jewish heritage in Europe since 1750 has been examined almost entirely in the context of German-speaking Europe or in studies of a group of composers who strongly self-identified as Jews.

In five thematic sections, this multi-disciplinary volume presents rich coverage of the main genres produced by musicians of Jewish origin in the Polish lands: Cantorial and Religious Music, Jews in Polish Popular Culture, Jews in the Polish classical music scene, The Holocaust reflected in Jewish music, and Klezmer in Poland today. This volume explores the activities and great creativity of musicians of the ‘Mosaic persuasion’, covering the area of the Polish-Lithunanian Commonwealth and its successor states from 1750 to the present.

The conference will look at Cantorial Music, Jews and Polish popular culture, and Klezmer in Poland today.

The conference is organized by the Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies, and the Institute of Jewish Studies, UCL. Co-organized and supported by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland, and the Polish Cultural Institute, London, with the support of Ślipaczek Chartered Financial Planners

‘POLIN Vol. 32’ is published by the Littman Library of Jewish Civilisation/Liverpool University Press. It will be available to purchase at the conference at a 30% discount.

Conference tickets Include tea-coffee and a kosher lunch
