The uniqueness of Germany’s musical cultural landscape has transformed the Central European country into a global hub for music and culture.

As with music alone, hardly an era has passed when Germany has not spawned a world-renowned classical musician from Händel to Bach, Beethoven to Brahms, Schumann to Wagner, Hindemith to Stockhausen. According to George Terris’s The Great German Composers, the growth and development of German music are eminently noteworthy facts in the history of the fine arts - and may we add, culture, pre-modern and modern as well.
Home to the father of modern music, Johann Sebastian Bach, according to Roderick Cavaliero’s book in his book Genius, Power and Magic: A Cultural History of Germany from Goethe to Wagner, between the end of the Thirty Years War in 1648 and unification under Bismarck in 1871 - Germany became the land of philosophers, poets, writers and composers.
Today, there are over 130 publicly financed professional orchestras with 10000 members, over 80 permanent opera companies (almost as many as the rest of the world combined) and 800 theaters, a density higher than any other country in the world.
Some even claim that Germany is the Mecca for classical music. Of the almost 83 million inhabitants, around 14 million people play an instrument or sing in a choir. One or more instruments are played in every sixth German household. According to the German Music Council, 33% of Germans like classical music (in comparison, about 17% of the population in the US, and about 15% in the UK), the proportion only comparable to Russia and Japan. In North Rhine-Westphalia, there is an opera house, a concert hall, an orchestra, countless choirs or at least a music festival off every fourth exit of the Autobahn.
Our evening performance named A Musical history with German Composers will present to us all the major brushstrokes, not without astonishing garnishes, in our modest attempt to journey through the bigger musical-cultural history of German music, an important component of global musical trove.
With it, We at Saigon Classical Group would travel with you back in time, the time-travel capsule called… Music.
