Review “Dorothy Lamb Crawford offers valuable material on such individuals as Klemperer, Stravinsky, and Schoenberg and this book does much to highlight lesser-known figures usually forgotten.”—Leon Botstein, president, Bard College (Leon Botstein ) "Dorothy Crawford provides both a wealth of fascinating detail and a convincing narrative sweep. She is ideally positioned to illuminate this crucial strand in American cultural history."—Steven Stucky, Cornell University (Steven Stucky ) "Artistic survival is the underlying story of A Windfall of Musicians. More significant places in history may have been lost to these composers, but the seeds they planted in Southern California continue to bear fruit."—William Kraft, Professor Emeritus of Music, University of California, Santa Barbara (William Kraft ) "These incredible refugees had a huge impact on Los Angeles and the West Coast. Their contribution, from which I and many others benefited greatly, is incalculable, and I am delighted with this new book."—Marilyn Horne (Marilyn Horne ) "A necessary and very accomplished story.”—Leon Kirchner, Harvard University (Leon Kirchner ) “Using an impressive range of sources, Crawford vividly illuminates the personal destinies of a generation of musicians emigrating from Hitler’s Europe and their contribution to the aspiring musical culture in Southern California.”—Hermann Danuser, Professor of Historical Musicology, Humbolt University (Hermann Danuser ) "The focus of world culture shifted in the years preceding WWII when the cream of the European artistic population fled from Hitler''s Nazism. The dramatic stories of these creative musical emigres in America come alive for the first time in Crawford''s carefully researched and fascinating book."—Vivian Perlis, Yale University (Vivian Perlis ) "Ms. Crawford, who has spent much of her working life teaching and making music in Southern California, brings a physical familiarity to her narrative and a keen eye for poignant detail, the shock of the new. . . . A Windfall of Musicians is valuable for its account of how the West became a cultural force in America, a rising counterweight to the tradition-stifled East."—Norman Lebrecht, Wall Street Journal (Norman Lebrecht Wall Street Journal ) “Stimulating . . . [Crawford] turns up a lot of untold material that proves consistently fascinating.”—Scott Eyman, Palm Beach Pulse (Scott Eyman Palm Beach Pulse ) "An important contribution . . . the legacy of these survivors transcends their life stories and continues to shape the cultural landscape to this day."—Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times (Jonathan Kirsch Los Angeles Times ) "With its engaging and energetic style, A Windfall of Musicians is accesible and informative reading for anyone with an interest in the roles musicians escaping from Hitler''s influence played in the musical life of Southern California."—Joshua S. Walden, Journal of Jewish Identities  (Joshua S. Walden Journal of Jewish Identities ) About the Author Dorothy Lamb Crawford has lived and worked in music throughout her career, teaching and lecturing, performing as a singer, directing opera, and hosting broadcast interviews with musicians.
