I know that sounds logical, but as a late 19th century movement it is clearly defined as "nationalism."

The Harvard Dictionary of Music dedicates 4 full columns to this popular trend. "Nationalistic" is used as an adjective to speak of its elements. Thanks for the feedback! Perhaps it would be fair for me to allow "nationalist" as a type-in?
