German Composers: The World's Finest Composers

You've heard their names before: Brahms and Beethoven. Clearly some of the most prolific and influential composers of the Classical era.

But where did these brilliant minds come from? Where was their homeground?

In fact, they were German composers, adding to a list of some 30-odd other figures who took up their music roots in a country culturally diverse with architecture, museums, fine arts, castles, palaces, and so much more that you can hardly wait to experience it all.
Today, the legacy of these German composers - as well as composers who lived, worked and performed mainly throughout Germany - endures with events like the Mozart Cycle Path, Thuringian Bach Weeks, and other journeys in music and history that will be sure to capture your heart and mind.
Use the composers list on the left to learn more about each composer of Germany and to see the events available for you and your family to relive their rich history and upbringing.
