Biographical/Historical Note

Legendary cellist, Pablo Casals, called Ernest Bloch "the best composer of our time" and composer Alfredo Casella stated "..his art is one of grandeur and majesty which sometimes recalls the Moses of Michelangelo." High praise for one of the first distinguished European composers (others included Stravinsky, Schoenberg and Bartok) to make the United States his home in the early 1900s. Bloch's Jewish heritage was his greatest source of strength and creativity and was most visibly expressed during his "Jewish Cycle" of composition between 1912 and 1916. The music of the masters (Beethoven, Mahler and Debussy) was another great influence on the youthful Bloch, but he also demonstrated a neo-classical approach in his later quintets, quartets, suites, symphonies and especially in his EPIC RHAPSODY, AMERICA for orchestra, winner of the 1928 Musical America Prize. Bloch's compositions earned him world-wide acclaim, honors and awards, but his greatest and proudest accomplishment was the influence he had on his admirers and students including future composers Herbert Elwell, Randall Thompson, Roger Sessions and Robert Strassburg.

The life, career and scholarship of Dr. Robert Strassburg, in many ways, parallels that of Ernest Bloch. Strassburg always expressed a passion for music. He would play up to eight hours a day as a classically trained concert pianist, but he also devoted his life to composing, conducting, teaching (Professor Emeritus of Music at California State University) and writing. In 1950, Strassburg moved to Miami where he became a key contributor to the southern Florida music scene, writing over 40 documentary film scores. He founded the All Miami Youth Symphony Orchestra (now the Greater Miami Youth Symphony) in 1958. The Robert Strassburg Piano Concerto Competition is held each year to honor its founding director. In 1955, he was named Miami Composer of the Year. In addition to his personal musical accomplishments, Professor Strassburg is credited with being one of the world's leading authorities on the life and music of Ernest Bloch. His critically acclaimed biography, ERNEST BLOCH: VOICE IN THE WILDERNESS (Trident Shop, California State University, 1977) was a labor of love and music scholars consider this biography to be THE textbook on the works of Ernest Bloch.


Scope and Content

Dr. Robert Strassburg's extensive research material (dating back to the late 1950s) on the career of Ernest Bloch (as well as his own career) is now housed in the Belknap Collection for the Performing Arts. This important collection of notes, articles, research sources, published and photocopied scores, drafts, galley proofs, photographs, correspondence with friends and family of Ernest Bloch and vinyl recordings was donated by Robert Strassburg's son, Dr. Marc Strassburg in October 2003. The Strassburg family chose the University of Florida, as the repository for this material, as a result of their contact with and respect for Dr. David Z. Kushner, the Head of Musicology and Music History in the University of Florida School of Music. Dr. Kushner is also a noted expert on the music of Ernest Bloch having published two respected works on the composer (ERNEST BLOCH: A GUIDE TO RESEARCH and THE ERNEST BLOCH COMPANION). Marc Strassburg wrote of Dr. Kushner: "...from your wonderful accomplishments and leading position as an academician in this area, I am positive that my father would be thrilled on my making this contact with you."

We are grateful to Dr. Marc Strassburg for his generosity and we thank Professor Kushner for his tireless negotiations during this transaction with the Strassburg family. Their efforts on behalf of the University of Florida resulted in a treasure trove of material for the Belknap Collection and the Department of Special and Area Studies Collections. The preservation of the work of Dr. Robert Strassburg provides invaluable material for future scholars and researchers at the University of Florida and we are proud to add this resource to the collections.
