L'autore: Ludwig van Beethoven was born in 1770 in Bonn, Germany. He began music lessons in violin, piano, and composition with his father when he was 4 years old. In 1790 he was appointed assistant court organist in Bonn. Around 1800, Beethoven began to notice that he was becoming deaf. By 1820 his deafness had worsened to the point that he could no longer conduct his orchestra. Although completely deaf for the last seven years of his life, he continued to compose. Beethoven died in Vienna in 1827. Beethoven wrote in practically all musical forms, but is one of the greatest of all instrumental composers. His works include one opera, an oratorio, two Masses, various songs, as well as sonatas for piano and for the violin. His concertos include five for the piano and one for the violin. His nine symphonies are considered his greatest works. Franz Joseph Haydn was born in Austria in 1732. At the age of 29 he entered the service of the famous Hungarian noble family of Esterhazy. Under his direction, their orchestra became one of the finest private orchestras of the time. After the death of Prince Esterhazy in 1790, Haydn was dismissed from the Esterhazy estate and traveled to London. Some of his best works were composed during this period. In 1795 he returned to Austria and was honored throughout the country. Haydn's achievement in the instrumental music field earned him a place in music history. In fact, he has often been called the "Father of the Symphony" because his symphonic works so overshadowed the works of those who came before him. Franz Schubert was born in 1797 near Vienna, Austria. His family was rather poor, since his father was a schoolmaster. Schubert received his first musical instruction from his father, an amateur cellist, and was taught violin beginning at the age of 8. By the time he was 11, he began lessons on the piano, organ, and in voice. After studying instrumental composition, he wrote his first symphony in 1813. Throughout his life, Schubert composed a large number of lieder, or art songs. He also wrote several dramatic works, chamber music, piano music, and eight symphonies.
