Just amazing...

I have recently renewed my interest in classical music.
I particularly like the works of Bach, Beethoven and Mozart as well as many others, too (and of course, Dvorak Wink)
Listening to it in the car got me thinking; back then (no PCs, recording equipment etc) they had no way of really knowing how many of their compositions would sound until their first public airing yet their genius always shone through.
I am not suggesting that there aren't great contemporary composers but that it seems even more amazing considering the restrictions they worked with. Although, to be fair, they wouldn't have felt they were restricted.

With 50, 60, 70, 80, even 90 musicians in an orchestra (OK some group together and play the same 'track'), that's a lot going on all at the same time.

Yes, and they had to write each 'track' out by hand using quills and such.
