Beethoven is remembered as one who was often not content with conforming to Classicism’s standardized understanding of music. Many see the composition of Eroica as the first symphonic step for Beethoven that would bring Romanticism into music and change music history forever.
A great admirer of Beethoven, Brahms was directly inspired by him and his first symphony was labelled ‘Beethoven’s Tenth’ by admirers. Brahms is often most famously remembered for his Hungarian Dances.
He drew direct inspiration from Beethoven. He composed his most famous work, the Symphony 9, know as the New Worl Symphony during a trip to USA. Pay attention, his music sounds ‘kind of folk’ since he uses ‘negro’ melodies and czech folk.
Polish-born composer Frederic Chopin is most remembered for his works for Piano (Which include Preludes, Etudes, Waltzes, Mazurkas, Nocturnes, and Two Piano Concertos etc. etc.).
