In year 1792 Dec 12 Beethoven had his first composition lesson from Franz Joseph Haydn. A year after Mozart death.

A quote from Beethoven finical backers, Ferdinand von Waldstein, " You are going to Vienna in fulfilment if your long-frustrated wishes.. you will receive the spirit of Mozart from the hands of Hayden".

Haydn is one of the well known classical era composer alongside with Mozart. It is believed that Haydn and Mozart are great friends and they often admire each other's work.
