Les musiques d’Europe de l’Est

Music in Eastern Europe

With the redrafting of geographical maps and the rise of massive movements toward independence from the historically dominant empires of Europe and Russia, the end of the 19th century witnessed an eastward expansion of Western classical music. Largely influenced first by Romanticism and later by German Post-Romanticism, the countries concerned became more and more emancipated by drawing on the rich legacy of their native traditions. Enter Messrs Smetana, Janáček, Bartók, Kodály, Martinů, et alia!
