Lecture no. 43 from the course: How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition
Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 45 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
This lecture examines the trend of folkloric musical nationalism during the second half of the 19th century with a brief history, followed by a discussion of musical exoticism. Ultimately, the lecture turns to Franz Liszt, perhaps the most representative instrumental virtuoso/composer of the 19th century, and his composition Totentanz.
