The city of Hamburg is so excited by the tercentenary of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach that it is building a museum courtyard for all the composers that ever lived within its hospitable society.
1 Johannes Brahms has a museum all to himself.
2 CPE Bach we’ve mentioned.
So who else?
5 Mahler (1891-97)
er…. and ….?
6 Ligeti lived there in the 1990s. So did
7 Alfred Schnittke.
All right, one more:
8 Detlev Glanert, composer of ultraviolent operas, was born in Hamburg, September 1960 (h/t: Karen Kamensek).
9 Sofia Gubaidulina (still living there)
10 Felix Mendelssohn,
11 Fanny Mendelssohn, both born there
12 Paul Dessau
13 Bertold Goldschmidt
Yep, I think we made ten,
