Marc Wielart

About this exposition

Name: Marc Wielart Main Subject: Piano Research Supervisor: Gerard Bouwhuis Title of Research: Jewish composers in a social context Research Question: Should Jewish composers be programmed under the heading of their identity, considering their position in society and their artistic influence? Summary of Results: This research paper is a personal subject; belonging to a minority means to conceal a part of your identity when necessary. Ultimately, Jewish individuals who deepened their social awareness, contributed disproportionately by expressing their inner richness to the arts. Quite often composers of Jewish descent are being programmed because of their presumed identity. German speaking Jews shared in general a deep respect for German culture, language and national identity. Almost all of Jewish intellectuals identified themselves above all as ‘German’. In order to outline the social context of several influential Jewish composers, a journey leads us through correspondence and thoughts by intellectuals from the nineteenth century to the landmark of the Second Viennese School and Expressionism. Everyone’s artistic and personal development is an individual occasion. Jewish composers shared in general a high awareness of their social position and the political developments in the societies they were part of. The historical background of German-ruled Europe in the nineteenth century is important to understand the eventually cruel fate. German culture was both inclusive as exclusive, as I described in an introducing chapter on historical and social developments. Gradually artists of Jewish descent and loyalty were confronted with the downside of their culture: Exclusion. Today, we have access to an enormous amount of information, such as musical sources, correspondence, publications and interviews. While using the direct sources, we are able to set eyes on expressions of hatred, anxiety and alienation. Biography: Marc Wielart (1990) studied with pianists Ton Hartsuiker, Rian de Waal and Ellen Corver. Before this research he studied subjects as the relation of music to the fine arts, wrote a dissertation on the influence of Immanuel Kant on modern European artists and is active at informing on modern anti-Semitism.
