Curtis (Seattle U.) shows how nationalist music was instrumental in building European nations throughout the 19th century, and how the most popular composers were able to develop society, culture and national pride. Starting with Wagner's participation in political demonstrations in Dresden shortly after completing Der Ring Des Nibelungen, the author examines how much of the music of the period was written to foment the political process, and to initiate change. Students of 19th century history and music will find many of Curtis's observations compelling. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
