He lived from 17th January 1756 until 5th Decemeber 1791 in Salzburg, Austria. He was one of 7 children, 5 of them died. Being able toplay the keyboard, he starts to compose songs at the age of five. He was a master of music, since he was young. Even if his music was fantastic, his financial situations were really critical. He didn't only compose songs, he even composed operas like The Marriage of Figaro or Don Giovanni. Mozart always had problems with hs father bcausethe father was often against his dcisions, like the marriage to Constanze. Mozarts cause of death isn'tclear, even now. It can only be shown that he was burried in a grave for common people mixed together, because of his financial problems.
Music could not convey pictures or ideas, some composers resorted to "objective" devices which imitated natural sounds. Much of the music during the nineteenth century has a sentimental quality.

Composers were greatly influenced by the intense nationalistic feelings that developed after the Napoleonic wars. The main areas of nationalistic music during the nineteenth century were Germany, Italy, France, Central Europe and Russia.
Programmatic Compositions
Ludwig van Beethoven
The development and use of descriptive music became an important part of the Romantic movement. The trend from the subjectivity of the composer to the emotionalism in the listener was natural. It has included descriptive titles, melodic formulas, harmonic cliches and instrumental effects.
Beethoven was baptised on 17th December 1770 and died on 26th March 187. He is one of the most famous composers in the world. In his early ae, his father taught him music. At the age of 22, he got friends with Haydn and Mozart, who later ruled the music in the Classical Period with Beethoven. In 1792, Beethoven moved to Vienne, where he also spentthe rest of his life. At the age of 26, he started to loose his hearing. It all started with a sound like a bell, caused by a tinnitus. The ringing made it heard to listen to music. Afteloosing his earing, most of the songs he comosed contain many deep notes, because he could feel the vibration of te eep tones more. But it didn't stop him from composing music. He tried many hearing aids like thous hearing horn.

The harmonic system established by Rameau in 1722 began breaking down during the Classical period. The Romantic composers exploited the use of altered chords and modulation to such a degree that the feeling for a central tonality often became obscure.
Franz Schubert
Franz Peter Schubert was born in Austria on 31st January 1797 and died on 19th November 1828. He was one of his parents 15 kids, but 9 died of infanty. Only 5 survived. At the age of seven he had his very first Piano lesson, but it consisted more with talking and discussing about pieces. He also played the viola and was the first viola in his family's quartette. His life only lasting less then 32 years, Schubert composed 600 Lieder, and nearly ten completed symphonies. Some of them were left as the uncompleted symphonies. Like Mozart, Scuberts causeof death isn't really clear. Some people said that he died of typhoid fever but other say that he died of syphilis. One of his last wishes was, that he wanted to be burried next to Beethoven. The two are still burried together in the Zentralfriedhof of Vienna.
Lasted from 1760 to 1830
During the Romantic period, the piano (pianoforte) became the most popular single instrument. It became a musical symbol of Romanticism, and was enlarged to give it a wider range and more tonal power. The piano reached such heights of popularity that it became the favorite household instrument with every family that could afford it.
Joseph Haydn
Joseph Haydn was bon on 31 March 1732 – 31 May 1809. Lik Mozrt ad Schubert, he is an Austrian composer. He is even called the 'Father of Symphony'. When he was six years old, his parents noticed that aydn has a muician gift and sent him 7.5 miled away from home to his relative, because he was a schoolmaster and the head of the choir in a school. He took care of Joseph. Joseph remembers that life at his relatives wasn't easy, he was frequently hungry. After many trips to London hee back to Vienna in 1795. Shortly after an attack of Napoleon on Vienna in 1809, Haydn died at the age of 77.
The French Revolution
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was the fifth and survivng child of Johann Sebastian Bach. He lived from 8 March 1714 until 14 December 1788. He was one of Bachs children and Bach senior always wanted his children to become famous. his is how Carl Pilipp Emanel and his siblings were taught music by their father. After obtaining his degree in law he turned his attention to music. Composers like mozart said of him "He is the father, we are the children." Composers like Beethoven admired him, too.

Thomas Tallis (1510-1585)
Josquin Des Prez (1440-1521)
Pierre de La Rue (1460-1518)
Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)
William Byrd (1543-1623)
English composer, flourished as a church musician, and is considered one of the church's best early composers. Although Tallis composed many styles of music, the majority of it is arranged for choir as Latin motets and English anthems.
Europe's most sought after musician during his lifetime. His popularity was a result of combining many contemporary styles of music, his originality, and his ability to unveil the meaning and emotions of a text through music. Much of Josquin's music survives today, with his masses and chansons being the most popular.
La Rue's repertoire consists entirely of vocal music. His most popular work, the Requiem, and one of the earliest surviving Requiem masses, emphasizes the lower voices. As well as low voicing, various rhythmic patterns and long, flowing melodies are main characteristics of La Rue's music.
Linking the Renaissance to the Baroque, His revolutionary music included the first dramatic opera, Orfeo. Much of Monteverdi's early years were spent composing madrigals; nine books in total. These books clearly mark the change in thinking and compositional style between the two periods. Book 8, Ottavo Libro, includes what many consider to be the perfected form of the madrigal,
It is said that he is perhaps the greatest English composer of all time. With hundreds of individual compositions, Byrd seemingly mastered every style of music that existed during his lifetime, outshining Orlando de Lassus and Giovanni Palestrina. Apart from his choral works, Byrd is considered by many to be the first "genius" of the keyboard.
