Oral history interview with Yehudi Wyner wherein he discusses growing up as the son of composer Lazar Weiner and the cultural networks his father was part of. Through this conversation, Wyner contemplates what it means for both himself and his father to be Jewish composers, and how this dialogues with notions of authenticity and commercialism in writing and evaluating art music. Wyner also discusses his own approach to composition and details the commissions of some of his works, including Tants un Maysele (1981), The Mirror (1972), his Friday Evening Service (1963), and more.
