Romantic Nationalism

Watch the documentary posted below about Romantic Nationalism. It will describe several of the composers we have already discussed and introduce you to two major figures we will discuss next week. Your discussion assignment next week will also refer back to details from this documentary, so you will want to take notes as you watch this week.
For your assignment submission (either text entry or file upload), please write a minimum of 750 words answering these questions:
Which composers were discussed in the documentary?
Name two composers that were directly involved with political movements, public statements, or social upheaval?
Name one composer and piece that is described as nationalist?
