12. They did, but that doesn't make his music less valuable;

he was an enormously talented composer and there's no evidence of his anti-Semitism in the music itself. If he were still alive I wouldn't go to performances or buy recordings because I wouldn't want to support such a person financially; I won't go to movies featuring prominent (living) right-wing actors for the same reason even if the movies themselves are politically neutral. But there is certainly nothing wrong with admiring the work of the very talented also-dead anti-Semite and evidently somewhat awful person Degas (who was an excellent draftsman even if he was an impressionist).
