Avainsanat:Juutalainen musiikki, kamarimusiikki, klarinetti, Neuvostoliitto, taiteellinen tutkimus, Venäjä
In her doctoral research, Anne Elisabeth Piirainen sheds light on a little known aspect of the clarinet repertoire – clarinet music from Russia and the former Soviet Union. This performance-based research gives insight into a large variety of very valuable yet quite forgotten compositions with a special focus on clarinet works with Jewish themes. The thesis is published as a website and includes an extensive clarinet composition database that aims to close the research gap on this topic.
