Joseph Haydn

Haydn was the second son of Mathias Haydn and Maria Haydn. His father was a wheelwright and his mother was a cook . During this time if the parents couldn't provide as much for their kids, they could take them to church so the could would take care for them.

In Haydn's case it was his cousin who took him into his home to train him near Hainburg.

So, Haydn left his home at the age of six and never saw his parents except for brief encounters. Haydn was involved in many musical things. He used to sing with the choir at church, he also learned how to play many instruments by the age of eight. Haydn was invited to sing in the choir for the most important church, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, in Austrian when musical director of the church noticed him. His parents said yes, of course and as of 1740 Haydn was living in Vienna. He studied with him for nine years. However, later on his eight-year old voice changed and he was kicked out from the choir. Seventeen-year old Haydn found himself doing small jobs here and there to be able to support himself. During this time he took a course on some study of musical works and music theory where he studied some of the works of C.P.E. Bach. With the help of Nicolas Porpora, Haydn made some musical progress.

Later on he met Karl Joseph von Fürnberg, whose house Haydn used to play chamber music. Haydn became the director of the Bohemian count Ferdinand Maximilian von Morzin in 1758. He was in charge of an orchestra that included sixteen musicians, which he wrote his first symphony for. He died May 32, 1809.

One of Haydn's work is the Trumpet Concerto. This piece of work includes the following instruments; strings, flutes, oboes, bassoons, and horns. However, Haydn's main attention is on the trumpet. The concerto breaks down in three forms; Allegro first, flowing by Andante, and Allegro coming back again. The melody takes place in the middle area.

Ludwig van Beethoven

He was baptized on December 17th, 1770 in Bonn, Germany. Son of Maria Magdalena Keverich and Johann van Beethoven. His father was a musician at the court of Bonn. Since Beethoven's dad was a musician, Beethoven had an early insight and talent for music. With only seven years of age Beethoven gave his first performance at Cologne. 9 Variantions in C Minor for piano was Beethoven's first work which he published at the age of 12. Prince Maximillian Franz noticed Beethoven's music. Franz decided to send Beethoven to Vienna to meet Mozart so he could provide Beethoven with a better music education in 1787. Later on Beethoven received a letter saying that he mother was dying, he went back to Bonn. His mother passed away July 17th, 1787. Five years later he returned to Vienna. Beethoven knew many people at Vienna including Haydn. In 1800 he presented his first symphony. He started going deaft at the beginning of 1801. After many symphonies and accomplishments, Beethoven passed away March 26th, 1827.

One of Beethoven's work is Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor. This is one of Beethoven's most famous compositions for the piano. This piece of work is a little bit difefrent. Instead of being fast, slow, and the fast again Beethoven made it slow, and then going to a faster movement.

Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart

Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart born in what is now named Austria in January 27, 1756. Son of Leopold Mozart and Anna Maria Pertl Mozart. His father was a successful composer, violinist, and assistant concertmaster at the Salzburg court .

With both of his parents being into music, Mozart developed a strong talent towards it. When he was six he was writing his first compositions. Since an early age Mozart's parents took Mozart along with his sibling to tours in Europe. There they performed as child prodigies. Because of that Mozart became acquainted with J. C. Bach and Haydn.

The Magic Flute was one of Mizart's most famous work. With this piece Mozart became financial stable. Unfortunately, Mozart became ill soon after the success. Mozart died December 5, 1791.

One of Mozart's work is Violin Concerto #3. The piece is in three movements; Allegro, Adagio, and Rondeau. In the second movement is when the main theme comes on. In the third movement the violin comes in place again. Kind of like the first movement, the orchestra follows the violin just by changing the key.
