Idealistic Studies 25 (1):69-91 (1995)

Musicians sometimes shake their heads in wonderment at the remarkable incidence of musical creativity that occurred in Germany and Austria between the years 1750 and 1900. One after another, a series of musical giants arose in rapid succession, each unique, and each exemplifying human artistic genius of the highest possible order. That the German-speaking world dominated music composition during this period is scarcely open to question. But it was not always this way. In the seventeenth century, the first phase of the period which has come to be known as the Baroque, the Italians were dominant, and in the centuries before that the Flemish composers of the Renaissance and the high Middle Ages like Ockeghem and Josquin des Pres were second to none in importance.
