I agree generally with what Aramis says, its just a simple way to divide responsibility for the propagation of arts.

I know quite a few dutch composers through concerts and various premieres and feel Im only just beginning to recognise a 'Dutch style' (which is of course fairly young). I hope to start educating you all pretty soon!

Well, the Dutch have contributed very little in terms of composers of standing, so that hardly affected my preferences (although I do have Sweelinck, Anrooij, both Andriessens, Zweers and Diepenbrock in my CD collection).
Historically thats true, but I think were starting to see a bloom in young dutch composers, and there seem to be a few 'distinctly dutch' threads running through all their music.

Andriessen of course is the big daddy. Try composers such as Keuris, Jeths, de Raaff, Roukens, van der Aa, Vermeulen, de Vries.
