 Gustav Mahler
His propagation of his own music, however, aroused opposition from a section of the Viennese musical establishment, and when the campaign against him, led by an anti-semitic press, gained momentum he was again forced to look elsewhere.
Even in the early Das klagende Lied, there are stylistic features to be found in his mature music, for example the combining of onstage and offstage orchestras, the association of high tragedy and the mundane, the drawing on folksong ideas and the dramatic-symbolic use of tonality.
Mahler's extension of symphonic form, of the symphony's expressive scope and the use of the orchestra (especially the agonized timbres he obtained by using instruments, particularly wind, at the top of their compass) represent a pained farewell to Romanticism; different aspects were followed up by the Second Viennese School, Shostakovich and Britten.

For three years (1884-6), he wrote trenchant musical criticism for the Wiener Salonblatt, siding with Wagner and against Brahms, meanwhile working on Penthesilea (1883-5) and the d Minor Quartet (1878-84) and beginning a secret love affair with Melanie Köchert.
Yet he was original in his conception of the songbook as the larger dramatic form; each one seems to have been planned in advance to represent a poet or source.
Folk music, nature studies, humorous songs and ballads peopled by soldiers, sailors, students or musicians recur in the German settings, while religious or erotic themes dominate the Spanish and Italian songbooks.

 Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Romanticism
Musical labeling is a notoriously sticky business, and any label that's supposed to apply to almost a century of music and to dozens of different composers —; composers as diverse as Schubert and Sibelius, Berlioz and Puccini, Wagner and Tchaikovsky — is bound to be exceedingly broad, if not completely arbitrary.
There are certain important elements and ideals, nonetheless, that form the foundation of Romanticism in music, and that provide common ground for composers whose styles don't seem, on the surface, particularly similar.
Among the musical forms developed in the nineteenth century as direct offspring of Romantic ideals and principles are the character piece for piano, the symphonic poem, and the song cycle.

 History, Theory and Practice of the Electric Telegraph (1860) -- Music extract
It is an amusing fact, that music has actually been transmitted by the Morse telegraph, by means of its rhythm; in fact, it is of very frequent occurrence upon all lines.
It is well known that the pitch of any musical note is the consequence of the rate of vibration of the string by which it is produced, and that the more rapid the vibration the higher the note will be in the musical scale, and the slower the vibration the lower it will be.
The adaptation of this power to the production of music upon telegraphic piano-fortes at any distance which may be desired, is a matter of the utmost simplicity, capable of being successfully carried into practice by any one who has the money and taste for the experiment.

That’s a remark made to an 1860’s British music hall audience by a clown whose performance of the trombone theme from Richard Wagner’s “Pilgrim Chorus” was an aural equivalent of a drunk trying to walk a straight line; the person who recalled this performance and the wisecrack that followed it was writer George Bernard Shaw.
Presumably the clown’s intention was to work the notorious modernist Wagner for some cheap laughs by “playing” his music on an instrument caught in the popular consciousness between church pieties on the one hand and barnyard hokum on the other.
The early twentieth century improvised musical styles that evolved into jazz afforded its practitioners unprecedented freedom of expression; by definition, an improvising musician is freer to creatively use the natural sound and resources of an instrument compared with a re-creative musician who is committed to performing composed music as an act of perpetuating the past.
