    Which Germanic People Has Had the Best Musicians Overall?

    I'm looking for a whole solid group of artists coming from one people, rather than one superb artist among a group of mediocre artists overall.

    You may disagree with the groups I have chosen. I feel that geopolitically these divisions of the Germanic people are the most reliable, particularly in a discussion on the arts. If you don't like these divisions, I am sorry — feel free to PM me any complaint you wish (that is, let's not sidetrack this discussion).

    And please, feel very free to cite — and if feasible, post — examples to support your choice.

    (This thread is part of a bundle of threads intended to compare the state of the arts among the Germanic peoples. You can see the knot tying the bundle together in this thread:

    Re: Which Germanic People Has Had the Best Musicians Overall?

    Great thread, Leofric.

    Within the whole classical genre I would be inclined to vote for the Germans, as their nation boasts an array of composers - Wagner, Beethoven, J.S. Bach, Handel, Brahams, Bruckner, plus many more. The German peoples' contribution to classical music is astounding - many cannot match them in this game.

    However, if we are talking about musicians who were not just classical composers, then there is not solid foundation on which one can decide; unless you feel a direct link towards the musician(s).

    Seriously, I could go on for a long time about this topic, but I will make it short and snappy

    Answer: Germans.

    Did you know that Mozart considered himself to be german? He also said germans are the best.

    I personally like listening to Bach and Händel.

    Sigurd Volsung, I am glad you found the other thread here:
    http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=51192

    This thread is not about composers but about actual musical performers. Of course I know that many composers have also been performers, but their skill as composers is not always equal to their skill as performers. And many performers are not composers at all. In this thread, I intended to discuss just performers (and if you discuss composer-performers, then discuss them as performers and forget their composition).

    Note too that the discussion need not be limited to what we often call classical music. The Who or the Scorpions or ABBA or AC/DC are just as much musicians as the London Philharmonic Orchestra or the Vienna Boys' Choir.
