The dissertation is an investigation, done mostly through Viennese periodicals, of the reception of Jewish musicians in fin-de-siècle Vienna and how this cadre of talented and mostly assimilated Jews contributed to Vienna's reputation as the modern music capital. With increasing antisemitism in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, these upholders of German culture were often excoriated by critics and the public as modernizing debasers of that culture, but few were radical, and those who were, should be considered reformers. Their strategies of accommodating to the modern world provide a focus of the study.
