The Germans can be called a musical nation because Germany gave the world such famous musicians and composers as Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Strauss and Handel. Classical music in Germany originated in the XVIII century and over the next two hundred years experienced its heyday. Now students from all over the world are eager to get into German music schools. It is curious that more than three hundred thousand Germans themselves are professional musicians. Classical music in Germany is still popular and ubiquitous. Various festivals are held here annually: from the Bayreuth festival dedicated to Wagner, to contemporary music festivals.
Today, the German music market is the third largest in the world. The Germans made a huge contribution to modern rock music. Developing in various genres, they were able to popularize their culture and interest the public, in particular, fans of rock groups, in German music in general. Famous representatives of the rock genre are Scorpions (hard rock), Rammstein (industrial metal), Guano Apes (alternative rock), Oomph !, Crematory, Grave Digger (heavy metal), Tokio Hotel (pop rock) and others. German bands Helloween and Blind Guardian became the founders of the now international power metal genre. In Germany, such narrowly national genres as Kraut rock, German industrial, a new wave genre called Neue Deutsche Welle and others are also known.
Starting from the 70s, the world began to learn about German pop musicians. In the 70-80 years. far beyond the borders of their homeland Modern Talking, Boney M, Sandra, Bad Boys Blue were known, these artists were especially popular in the former USSR.
