(Groan - do you people actually know what language they speak in austria? Could it actually be german? Congrats! So Mozart composed in german. That a lot of people think that irish music has more appeal and magic quality must be the 'celtic' touch. The visions of the emerald island. And the fame of the irish myths (including cobolds, leprechauns, sidhe). Music's magic is not only the sounds but the visions and emotions is evokes. And I like the scorpions too - "wind of change" is my favorite. So how about going back to magic, music, the word and its workings...please!!!)

I understand that Austrian's speak German, but it was said "German Composers" not German-speaking composers...
Dingalen, That was the point I was trying to make with the Irish/Celtic comparisson. They both evoke emotion, through different ways, some beautiful, some not so much...

I love how these discussions in the 1st year of Minas Tirith could devolve. A thread started on the Three Rings devolve into banter between who'se German and whose Austrian. Pure Gold.
