Writing Music History From and Through the Archive

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel

Dr. Assaf Shelleg specializes in 20th-century Jewish and Israeli art music, his recently published book, “Theological Stains: Art Music & the Zionist Project”, reveals how Israeli art music was shaped by and engaged with political theology. While writing the book, Dr. Shelleg drew on rich archives of previously unstudied materials, which he will discuss in his talk.

The event is part of the series, “Musical Treasures at the NLI”, which is taking place every Sunday of the month of February, featuring talks by leading Israeli music scholars who will delve into the secrets of the National Library’s extensive collections of audio recordings and musical history.
