Less Than a Week to Go!!!

I never blogged in August. It was a very busy month. At the beginning of the month I listened to composers from "National Schools". From 1830-1950, as "modern nation states emerged, music for many composers became a means of asserting their national identity."

Some more popular composers that can fall into this category:

  • Elgar (British)
  • Sibelius (Scandinavian)
  • Vaughn Williams (British)
  • Rachmaninoff (Russian)

Many of these composers used folk music in their classical compositions. New composers I found and liked:

  • Glinka (Russian)
  • Carl Nielsen (Scandinavian) He is a new favorite of mine!

I am in the modern period---and I'm enjoying it more than I thought!
