"MUSICAL NATIONALISM AND DVORAK: Regional and national styles of music and tastes in music have been of ever-present importance in the history of Western fine-art music. The evolution, confrontation, and cross-fertilization of such styles make up many of the more fascinating and productive chapters in that history. In the years between 1600 and 1900 the Italian, French, and Austro-German styles dominated the field, but not, of course, without effecting each other. In the nineteenth century the vigorous Germanic style was pre-eminent in almost all aspects of music-making. In a certain sense, the Romantic style was the German style, and it is no coincidence that so many nineteenth-century masters hailed from Germany or that non-German composers were so strongly influenced by German music. The 'Boston Classicists' in America and the French Wagnerians are among obvious examples."--page 14.
