The orchestra has kept silent about its past for decades. Its chairman, Clemens Hellsberg, wrote a history titled “Democracy of Kings” which was later criticized for not chronicling many misdeeds.

This book studies the role played by Jews in the explosion of cultural innovation in Vienna at the turn of the century, which had its roots in the years following the Ausgleich of and its demise in the sweeping events of the s/5(2).
