Why can't the dutch into classical music? I mean come on, even poland, POLAND has produced noteworthy composers. Netherlands? Nothing
Maybe it has to do with the Dutch mostly being protestant? A cursory google search tells me a lot of the great composers were catholic (with exception of Bach and the Russians).
Classical music doesn't really strike me as a Calvinist activity.
Partially true. During our golden age pretty much all instruments except church organs were frowned upon. So our classical artists (and our national anthem) are music pieces for church organs. Other instruments were for catholic heritics.
I can see the old Dutch colonists before me, showing the natives all kinds of European artistic triumphs, songs and paintings and architecture "And that's all made by you guys?" "Of course, all of it." "Ok we're in."

short english lesson for you:
if someone poses a question (is the sky red?), the correct response is in this form (No. They sky is blue). The way you responded makes you look retarded, you should have said" No, xyz is.
that's all. I don't know if Finnish people can't into english or they're just retarded.
>the only good thing to come out of the Netherlands were 20 buck fucks
Your sentence made it look like a rhetorical question. As in "Mahler is the best composer, isn't he?". At least that's how I interpreted it. Now rhetorical questions aren't real questions, but rather statements in form of a question.
Also I can into English as much as you can into Finnish.
Nothing strange about Poland having composers (and very good ones in fact). Slavs, in contrast to the /int/ meme, actually have a very sensitive, well-developed talent for artistic expression. They made great music, literature and later cinema.
The countries with a catholic background, which include the Romance countries, are also well developed in this sense, but when it comes to classical music, the countries with a protestant background (but not Germany, at least Southern Germany) lack in this manner. England too, next to Händel, an imported German, and Britten there aren't many great composers compared to the size of their Empire back then.
In classical music, the most noteworthy countries/peoples delivering the goods are: Italy, Germany, Austria and Russia followed by France, Hungary,Poland and the Czechs.
Lmao, they've got the planets by Holst and a few pieces by Elgar and that's it. In desperation they'll often try to claim the German Händel as their own.
Aww what the fuck. This thread was supposed to be a shitpost. Stop having constructive discussion!
Okeli. Why not discuss the noble art of painting as well?
First up, this magnificent avant-garde Noughties piece by an Australian artist called Shaky Steve , the Abo Thief (1967). The delicate, evenly smeared fecal coloured lines on the body, coupled with the far above average penis size (as compared to Australian mean average), make for a mysterious combination. Stance of the figure tells us it most likely is a young adult shitposter celebrating "St. Dannii Minogue and Vegemite Day".
Some argue that the stone background symbolises the hardened nature of Australian men, while others suggest that this dampened rock jpeg is a muffled cry for bedwet acceptance (an estimated 63% of male, female and shemale Australians suffer from this condition).
The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.
And people, let's be real here, since it is currently 2016, why cannot men both be hard as a rock, but also still wet their bed? There is no shame in leaking a bit of pee in your dungaree.
The motive to the true message of this Work of Art probably lies somewhere in the middle, but by all means, please make up your own minds.
That's not even entirely true. They were all Wends, Venedi. Romans saw them as a type of Germanics who adopted Sarmatian habits and intermarried with them.
Instead of quoting wikipedia, read "The Making of the Slavs" by Florin Curta, it is considered to be the most expert opinion on the matter.
Vandals were Wends too, they were in fact the ancestors of modern Poles (the Lugii or Lechs) who adopted Germanic culture. After migration of a part of them, the remainder got flooded with Wends from the east who adopted Slovene language (Antes and Slovenci united the Wends by enforcing their language upon them, since that moment they were known as Slavs).
Russians are still called Wends in Finnish and Estonian. The Slovenes were one of the tribes who founded the Russian confederacy according to the Primary Chronicle (together with Finnic and other Wend tribes)
The Latvian flag are the colours of the Vents tribe (Ventpils region).
Balts are Wends who did not adopt Slovene.
Jehan De Bourgunsle, one of the best musicians of 18 century, was French.
Is this shitposting? His reply was clearly in line with the declarative commentary found on 4chan.
> PERSON did nothing wrong.
> PERSON/THING is objectively superior.
> (arguing with someone) But that's wrong.
It's aggressive 4chan banter.
