  Polish Music Journal 5.2.02 - Labunski: Poland's Contribution to Music
The first half of the 18th century was characterized in Poland by the growth of secular music, the further development of instrumental music and the shifting of art patronage from the court to the wealthy magnates and landlords.
This period was marked by the development of symphonic music and produced several distinguished composers: W³adys³aw ¯eleñski (1839-1920) chiefly known as the author of the opera "Goplana," and of symphonic and chamber music.
[12] Their music is remarkable for its model character and unusual scales, derived from Polish folk music; by its fresh and vigorous rhythm; by its humor and healthy objectivism, all in keeping with the spirit of the new Poland, a spirit of action, optimism and self-reliance.

 Hugo Wolf   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
In 1888 Eichendorff's poetry and in particular Mörike's inspired a sudden flowering of song music that in profusion and variety matched Schubert and Schumann.
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.

 Richard Wagner: Master of the Music Drama
Thus, in dispensing with the then characteristic patterns of musical ornamentation, he introduced the extensive use of the leitmotif (or leading motive) - a musical theme associated with a character, an event, a thought, or an object.
Oddly, Wagner's music of the future invariably dramatized either Christian tales of the MiddleAges or the stories of ancient mythology - the lives and loves of its gods and goddesses, its heroes and heroines, its villains.
Perhaps it is because as a dramatist steeped in the traditions of Shakespeare and Greek tragedy, he saw these ancient stories which told timeless truths not as tales of fantasy but as a fitting allegory of the human condition.

 Richard Wagner
He married the singer Minna Planer in 1836 and went with her to Königsberg where he became musical director at the theatre, but he soon left and took a similar post in Riga where he began his next opera, Rienzi, and did much conducting, especially of Beethoven.
He also worked on the text and music of an opera on the 'Flying Dutchman' legend; but in 1842 Rienzi, a large-scale opera with a political theme set in imperial Rome, was accepted for Dresden and Wagner went there for its highly successful premiere.
Wagner did not stay long in Bavaria, because of opposition at Ludwig's court, especially when it was known that he was having an affair with Cosima, the wife of the conductor Hans von Bülow (she was Liszt's daughter); Bülow (who condoned it) directed the Tristan premiere in 1865.

 Paulo Mouat's personal homepage, Music Thoughts
It is undeniable that today's erudite music is difficult to perceive and understand, accounting for the wide demand for classical music, not to mention that of the more rock- or pop-like genres, and the comparatively meagre interest even in the most popular of 20th century pieces.
Moreover, I'd say that it is erroneous to think that music is for everyone or, in other words, that a piece of music is always composed with consensus in mind, everyone gathering a similar understanding from hearing it.
In a sense, Music is universal since it has the means to reach everyone, albeit with a different aspect from one person to the next.

 Guardian Unlimited | Arts Friday Review | Once upon a time in America
The saga of American music in the 19th century is a tale of outsized personalities, showdowns and rampant can-doism.
The situation in 1800 is reflected in the major musical publications of the year: six hymnals, a collection of odes on the death of George Washington, and one instruction book each for singers and instrumentalists.
Classical music, said a writer of the time, "is primarily the concern of women and long-haired, libidinous foreigners".

 Patriotic Music In America, Page 1
While all patriotic and national music is to a greater or less extent popular music, it may be classed apart in that its growth mainly is due to the circumstance of war and is the specific outcome of such conditions.
The repertory of popular music in America is especially rich in patriotic and national songs, in fact so much so that it is hard to fix on any one or even a few of them.
The first incentive to patriotic music was the Revolution, later followed by the War of 1812 and still later by the Civil War, The Spanish American War and the World Wars and regional conflicts of the twentieth century.
