Thread Name: Which has been the best decade for music
Subject: RE: Which has been the best decade for music
1790 -1800 : Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn all alive (Mozart just, alas, but The Magic Flute is in there, the Requiem, etc., etc. ). Beethoven's early piano music (up to and including the Pathetique). Haydn, more great everything.

Easily the best decade ever.
