Forging a National Consciousness

Beginning in 1848, the Year of Revolution, this program explores the role of song as a unifying cultural force in the face of vital political struggles. With the folksongs of their homelands ringing in their ears, composers from Brahms to Duparc, from Mahler to Mussorgsky, took up the torch of nationalism at a moment when worlds were colliding.
