Journal of Synagogue Music Online

As you may know, The Cantors Assembly has digitized it’s past issues of the Journal of Synagogue Music online. They are available in PDF format at along with their conference proceedings. These journal issues are searchable in a general way… that is, a search term will be found from the search in all documents with that word, but the reader will have to open the specific issues (pdf) and then use his/her Adobe Acrobat reader’s “find box” to pinpoint the keyword in the document. The reader must search each of the documents separately for the search term. Still, this is a remarkable addition to the study of Jewish music and having access to so many interesting articles from the last half century from distinguished cantors and writers is a tremendous boon to Jewish educators and all of us interested in Jewish synagogue music.…

Joseph Achron Society focuses on publication

The Joseph Achron Society, led by Sam Zerin, put out a fundraising call for publication of Achron’s works:

the Joseph Achron Society fundraiser ends tonight! Online donations are quick and easy, and will help us publish the first edition of Achron’s brilliant Paganini Caprice transcriptions!

You know as well as I do: more than half of Achron’s important legacy has never been published — despite high praise from the likes of Heifetz and Schoenberg — and thus remains inaccessible to most of today’s performers.

For the first time in almost 100 years, the Achron-Paganini Caprices will be easily available in print to performers world-wide! Let us work together. Help us with a tax-deductible donation today — and receive a free score!

Thank you for your help.…
