Many of the composors constituted the main foundation of their own music by
their national cultures (during the period 19th century to 20th century). There
are many examples. For example Scandinavian musician H. Kyerulf (1815-1868)
Edward Grieg (1843-1907), one of the masters of Chek music Smetana (1824-1884),
famous Russian composor Tchaikowski (1840-1893), the master of spanish music
Granode Tarina, Manuel De Folla and B.Bartok (1881-1945).
If the Turkish masters would have been alive today, would be able not to be
interested in western music? In his time Itri had found a way to benefit from
western music played by the Western Captive.
