Traditional + Classic

Germany

Can you name a traditional German musical instrument? Did you guess the bagpipe, zither, krummhorn, hackbrett or konzertina concertina?

German music has a long tradition that is incredibly diverse. Volksmusic and oompah music are two traditional genres that have become synonymous with Germany. What better way to get into the spirit of Germany than with a playlist?

Did you know that Germany claims some of the most renowned composers of the classical world? Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Johannes Brahms and Richard Wagner… just to name a few!
