Roots of the Classical

Peter van der Merwe

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with those strains in 19th-century music that would seem to be furthest removed from the vernacular discussed in the previous chapter. It begins with a general discussion of musical nationalism and its relation to Romanticism, then proceeds to the mainly Teutonic symphonic tradition, which was generally at odds the tendencies of the time but sometimes in harmony with them. Finally, Wagner's musical language and its relation to the vernacular is analyzed.

Keywords:   musical nationalism, Romanticism, Teutonic symphonic tradition, Wagner
