The case of Daniel Elder


Recommended Posts

I saw that the other day.

I listened to a few of his the videos. Lovely music.

I don't think his career is destroyed. He just has to knock on new doors. Maybe more than normal in today's context, but there are plenty of doors to knock on.

A spate of composers from Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia came over to the US during the early-to-mid 20th century ideological purges there. Many of them landed in Hollywood and became both wealthy and well-known. Today some of them enjoy classic status. Erich Korngold, Max Steiner, Dimitri Tiomkin and Miklos Rosza come to mind, but there are lots of them.

From another lens, I believe this experience was good for Elder.

Imagine writing beautiful music for spiritually ugly people to perform and publish...

Yuck.

If he seeks, he will find beautiful people to make beautiful music with.

As to the ugly people who targeted him, a reckoning is coming for their power... I expect them to scurry like cockroaches when it lands.
