    In the 1800’s, the industries of music performance and music composition were broadly dominated by men, as this was traditional and anticipated, not just in recent years, but stemming from centuries prior. The field of music was competitive, and not all who strived for recognition received it because of varying styles and reception of the audiences and because of the supply and demand of varied genres of music at the time.

    This verse has a striking similarity with Nietzsche 's explanation of Gay Science that should carry the heaviest burden.

    Kultur versus Natur While German anthropologists rejected the theory of evolution, there was still an interest in understanding the relationship between Kultur and Natur. They rejected evolutionism because it “placed steric categories of human nature into a fluid continuum…” (Zimmerman, 2001, p. 69).
