CHAPTER 9 Slavs as Subjects and Citizens
Smetana, Glinka, and Balakirev
If the New German School did not lack opponents at home, neither did its influence stop at the border. One of its most enthusiastic disciples was Bedřich Smetana (1824–84), who is now chiefly remembered (to quote the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians) as “the first major nationalist composer of Bohemia” (or, in today's vocabulary, the Czech lands). How could a Czech nationalist also be a “New German”? There are some paradoxes to sort out.
