I love the Leo Baeck Institute's new "Musik" page! There is a spotlight on Fanny Hensel, one of the musician/composers in my project's sphere.

"The works of the music-makers who were gathered here were once a solid and often stylistic part of the musical mainstream in Germany. Nevertheless, they are often forgotten or do not receive the attention they deserve. To change this, the Leo Baeck Institute New York | Berlin has compiled a selection of carefully archived records....

Even if the selection comprises only a fraction of the holdings of the Leo Baeck Institute New York | Berlin, the primary sources shown refer to impressive personalities and the extraordinary achievements of German-Jewish composers, musicians and conductors, whose work the audience is still spellbound pull."

The Leo Baeck Institute's Herz Collection of Renaissance Books

“The Rare Book Collection of Frank L. Herz” focuses on the famous Renaissance controversy between the Christian Hebraist Johannes Reuchlin, who introduced the study of Hebrew to Germany, and the anti-Jewish agitator Johannes Pfefferkorn, who was trying to lobby for the destruction of all Jewish books."
