Three composers in Vienna, Austria, rank among the greatest figures
of the classical period in music. They were Franz Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart, and Ludwig van Beethoven.
Haydn was particularly important in developing new musical forms, such as the
sonata and symphony. Mozart was a gifted child who began composing music at the
age of five and gave concerts throughout Europe as a youth. At 12, he wrote his first
opera. Mozart’s great operas—The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and The Magic
Flute—set a new standard for elegance and originality. Although he lived only to age
35, he wrote more than 600 musical works.
Beethoven showed enormous range in his work. He wrote beautiful piano music,
string quartets, and stirring symphonies. Beethoven’s earlier works were in the same
classical style as Mozart’s. However, his later compositions began new trends, which
carried music into the Age of Romanticism.
