The explosion of nationalism in the mid-19th century fostered a love of one’s region and the history and traditions of the civilizations that emerged there, as well as a sense of self-determination—of taking that history and tradition in hand to build something greater.

While we may think of orchestral music only in terms of live performances in acoustically tuned halls, the sound of orchestral instruments is perhaps more ubiquitous outside the concert hall than we realize.
