Ernest Bloch

Ernest Bloch has been played on NTS shows including Throwing Shade, with Sonata No. 2 For Violin Solo (To Jacques Thibaud) first played on 31 January 2015.

Ernest Bloch (1880–1959) was a Swiss composer.

Bloch's early works, including his opera Macbeth (1910) show the influence of both the Germanic school of Richard Strauss and the impressionism of Claude Debussy. His mature works, including his best-known pieces, often draw on Jewish liturgical and folk music. These works include Schelomo (1916) for cello and orchestra, the Israel Symphony (1916), Baal Shem for violin and piano (1923, later version for violin and orchestra) and Avodath Hakodesh (Sacred Service, 1933)…
