CHAPTER 3 Volkstümlichkeit
The Romantic Lied; Mendelssohn's Career; the Two Nationalisms
Although German-speaking composers have been prominent in the last several chapters (and will remain so for several chapters to come), and despite the frequent claim that their prominence raised the German “art music” tradition in the nineteenth century to the status of general standard and model (at least within the instrumental domain), the fact is that only two important musical genres were actually German in origin, and one of them was vocal.
