Or, more accurately, who is the most popular Jewish composer at the five Winter Jewish Music Concerts?
Meir Finkelstein. His compositions, written in a contemporary style, have been performed at every concert so far, with a total of six performances.
Just behind him is the great Israeli composer, Naomi Shemer (1930-2004), with five.
Composers whose songs have been performed three times each are the classically-oriented Max Janowski (1912-1991), and the contemporary Rachelle Nelson (who herself performed her compositions at the concert on two occasions).
It may reveal something about Jewish music—its world-wide breadth and folk origins—that sixteen compositions are attributed to traditional, folk, anonymous, or something similar.
