Mozart was considered a genius, even as a child, and at the age of six, Mozart had perfected his skills on the violin and harpsichord and could also read and write music beautifully. He wrote many operas, but as he got older, people started to say that his music was too complicated to follow. Mozart died at age 35 in Vienna in 1791. Beethoven, on the other hand, was not a child prodigy like Mozart. He still, to this day, influences classical music. His pieces were always so dramatic and brilliant that he continues to find an audience generation after generation. At the opening of the 19th century, Beethoven went deaf, which altered his music course for good. He passed away in Vienna in 1827 at the age of 55.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was given birth to in Salzburg, Austria, on the 27th of January 1756. He was so gifted as a child, having composed his first piece at age 5, and became a court musician at age 17. He spent most of his adult life in Vienna, where he composed his best works. During his time, he was known to be one of the versatile composer and musician, having composed music of various genres, including classical, concertos, symphonies, and operas. He died on the 5th December 1791, due to a disease he suffered from. In the other case, Ludwig Van Beethoven was in Bonn, Germany, on the 16th December 1770. He was a big fan of Mozart and was also knew as a good classical composer of his time, as well as a romantic musician. He made works that were of Mozart's pieces, but he was living a moody and lonely life, which usually showed in his music. He became deaf later on but kept on composing and performing still. He eventually died on 26th March 1827.

Mozart and Beethoven are known to be two of the best musicians that the world has ever seen. Some people may prefer one over the other depending on the music style that they may like better. Beethoven is known to have a very fiery personality which can also translate to the type of music that he composes. Mozart is very particular about the music that he creates which explains why his music is very precise and will always sound clean. When it comes to surprises, you can expect that Beethoven will add a lot of surprises while Mozart will be a bit predictable but the cleanliness will always make you want to listen to it more.
