Beethoven is considered one of the most important and influential composers; his work has had a dominant influence on nineteenth-century music.
Johann Sebastian Bach

He is considered by most music scholars as one of the largest and most influential composers in the history of classical music because of the inventiveness with which he used melody, harmony and rhythm, but also combined various musical styles of his time and dance forms, which inspired many composers after him and what they were trying to emulate.
Wilhelm Richard Wagner
Wilhelm Richard Wagner (Leipzig, May 22, 1813 - Venice, February 13, 1883) was a German composer.
Richard Wagner was an important innovator for the music of his time. He composed several major works as operas that he would rather like music dramas denoted and for which he also wrote the lyrics. He sought a Gesamtkunstwerk, the perfect union of word, music and drama. Eventually there emerged great music dramas that were finally staged in a purpose-built theater in the Bavarian town of Bayreuth.
Wagner spent almost his entire life in political and financial difficulties, until the later years of his life he came to wealth and prestige. He was first married to Minna Planer, later had a relationship with Mathilde Wesendonck, and married eventually with Cosima, the daughter of Franz Liszt, much younger than him. He even had one son, Siegfried Wagner.
Wagner, as a person and as a musician, remains the subject of controversy and emotional debate, idolization well as absolute rejection occur. His significance as a composer and musical innovator is however indisputable. There is extensive literature on Wagner reflects this controversy.

Chopin's already poor health eventually deteriorated and in 1849 he died in Paris 39 years old tuberculosis.
