Meanwhile it is clearly as hard for composers to renounce nationality as it is for their music to resist all attempts to bring nationality into the frame of its critical and analytical interpretation. Late 20th century musical nationalism tends in reality to be a particular, personal, multinational synthesis: and the greatest value the phenomenon has for the analyst is in reinforcing the primacy of the individual personality which creates those memorable compositional structures.
