Arno Nadel. The musical work of a man of many talents

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article surveys the life and lifework of Arno Nadel (1878–1943) in the field of music, as a collector, scholar, pianist, arranger, and composer. Based on his recently digitized estate at the National Library of Israel and other sources, it aims at presenting his immense output, and the unique linkage between conceptions and practice which characterizes it. The text also tries to point at the dense web made of ideas and interests, and at the cross-connections between intellectuals, all in the shadow of the turbulent times it all took place in.
