Summary
Music played a central role in the self-conception of many Germans between the 1848 Revolution and the First World War. Although German music was widely held to be 'universal' and thus apolitical, it participated in the historicist project of shaping the nation's future by calling on the national heritage. A wide variety of musical genres, ranging from pre- and post-Wagnerian opera to popular choruses to symphonic poems, provides for a new perspective on how national identities were constructed, shaped and celebrated in and through music
