and there's a mistake in the "Kaddish" link -- Bernstein died in 1990, not in 1980

No Mickey Katz? For shame...

Doesn't appear to have anything to do with Michael.

Cool, my local classical station was just talking about the new Milken archive on Friday. They're trying to (re-)popularize some little-known 19th Century Jewish composers. (Probably others too, of course, but a classical station focuses on classical music.)

Thanks for the link, matteo.

I'm a little-known 20th century Jewish composer.


(My namesake, however, is not.)

If you don't know David Diamond ... get to know David Diamond (1,2,3,4)!

According to this, the founder is Michael's brother, Lowell. MM's foundation is a major backer.

I feel like I would be cheating MeFi-kind if I didn't provide a link to this book.

An excellent read for anyone who is interested in Judaism, Yiddish folk music, Austrian anti-Semitism, Alpine culture, shepherding, or all of the above.
