Title: Famous Composers

Famous Composers
  • Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart

Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Born Eisenach (Germany), 21 March 1685
  • Died 28 July 1750
  • One of the greatest Baroque composers along with
    Handel. His most famous works are probably the
    Brandenburg Concerti, the Well-tempered clavier,
    The art of fugue, his Mass in B-minor, and the
    St. Matthew Passion.

Ludwig van Beethoven
  • Born Bonn, 16 December 1770
  • Died Vienna, 26 March 1827
  • One of the true greats. Beethoven didn't write as
    much as Mozart or Schubert, but what he produced
    is all worth listening to. Favorite symphonies
    are the third (Eroica), the fifth, the sixth
    (Pastoral'), the seventh and the ninth

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Born Salzburg, 27 January 1756
  • Died Vienna, 5 December 1791
  • Along with Haydn, one of the first classical
    composers. Wrote music of many different genres.
    Major works would include his Requiem, the operas
    Nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Die
    Zauberflöte, the clarinet concerto, the string
    quartets, the later piano concerti (nos. 20
    onwards) and the later symphonies (numbers 36,
    38, 39, 40 and 41).
