What nation composed more classical music than others

At this point in time, almost every country in the world has its own classical school. A unique culture is formed in each state, which has its own characteristics. So which country is the absolute record holder in the composition of professional music?

European school – the basis of classical music

The origins of professional music were laid in Europe. For centuries, traditions, rules of composing certain genres were formed in the classical version. The names of the greatest classics are connected with European culture. Particularly great heritage was presented to the world by Austria. The greatest composers, such as Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, came to this amazing country. Their creative heritage is amazing with its scale. But don’t forget about Germany, the state gave the baroque genius Johann Sebastian Bach in the 17th century, whose creative heritage is almost incalculable. It is pointless to list the names of all the composers who created beautiful music that is still popular nowadays. Classical music originated in Europe, where it developed actively.

Of course, no one recounted the heritage of culture, calculating  certain amount of classical works in various national schools, so there is no exact answer to this question and it can hardly be. Classical works are beautiful regardless of  country they were composed in, or who was a composer by nationality. I want to believe that musical art unites people, but does not divide them into categories, because music does not have geographical boundaries.
