I just love classical music. However it's a pity how little I know about some of the composers. Apart from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, I know very little bout the rest. So I turn to you.
sort by best latest
Thanks for your contribution Music and Art. Am getting quite a rich list here which is just priceless.
Thanks...I just love the Handel Messiah...it is a great way to end and start the day.
Hi e-five...is Gustav really an English composer? Name sounds kinda Russian. Thanks for sharing. Looking them up now
Thanks...am looking them up right now. Never heard of these composers and I can't wait to listen to their work. Thanks for answering
Thanks mate. I agree with you about the Germans..they were just in a class of their own at the time.
Thanks...seems these three carry the day. I got some Henry Purcell today and am loving his work
Thanks Mick...don't really know how to to distinguish the English from the Brittish. Am looking up your suggestions. Oh, By the way, if u don't mind me asking, were Mozart and Handel English/British?
Ah, I'm just listening to Playford, Nottingham Castle, British/English, it's complicated, but after the union of the British Isles, there was, I think, some Act passed naming the place Great Briain. M and H, H considered British, M, Austrian?
cuttler: Mozart was German. Handel was born in Germany, but was British.
Ah, Mozart's birthplacem Salzberg, Austria, Bavaria, independent state? Now, I beleve it may be part of Germany, It ain't important, it's the Ausrian/Germany part of the world.
Heh, I say Mozart was German because he self-identified as German. It was not Austria then, but the Holy Roman Empire. Many Austrians before World War II identified as German. He referenced Germany as his beloved fatherland (geliebtem Vaterland).
Thanks guys for the information..I greatly appreciate it
