Ludwig van Beethoven (1776-1827) was born in Bonn, Germany but spent most of his adult life in Vienna, Austria.  He gained fame as early as age 8 as a pianist.  He became a composer, conductor, and performer.  He never married.  He gradually became deaf but his compositions were many.  His best  known were Piano Sonata #14, "Moonlight Sonata;" his symphony #3, "Eroica;" and his 9th symphony, which is now called the "Anthem of Europe" with its special section "Ode To Joy."  His piano sonata "Pathethique" is reputed to be his most celebrated.

(Franz) Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was born in Rohrau, Austria  His family was non-musical but he was raised by a relative who was musical.  Most of his life was spent in Vienna where he served wealthy families as Music Director for their orchestras and/or ensembles.  He wrote concertos, masses, operas, string quartet pieces, and symphonies.  During his lifetime he was called the "Father of Symphonies."  His most famous works are the "Farewell Symphony," the "Surprise Symphony," and the "Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser" ("God Save Emperor Francis") which was used for the national anthem of both Austria and Germany.
