Benedictus Benedictus (5th), Painting by Bahman Mehabadi
Internal values of Mozart's music remained undiscovered for many years. Many superficies spectors regarded the beauty of his works as shallow, but the reality was different. He was a thoughtful and energetic artist and strove for his art as much as he could.

 In his short life, he revolutionized the music world into a realm of different colors and tastes with his eternal masterpieces. He is considered to be one of the greatest classic composers and it could be easily claimed that his genius has guided him in the right direction through the complicated world of music. Seven minuets and trios were composed by him when he was around 13 years old. These works are overfilled with ecstasy and youthful energy. Louis Couperin was one of the three children of Charles Couperin who was a French merchant and a prominent violinist. He was born around 1630 in Chaumes-en-Brie. His short life ended in Paris because of an unknown disease in 1665.In contrast to his contemporaries, Louis is considered to be a pioneer composer. He is among the descendants of a family who dominated a part of European music for about 150 years. Saraband by Couperin is a graceful dance with a polyphonic texture. While Saraband is originally Spanish, it has become popular in France and Britain. Minuet in G major by Ludwig Van Beethoven is a famous work. He was a unique human being who managed to break the captivity chains of music. His name indeed deserves honor and respect. According to him, the helpless poor will be relieved to see a man of their own class has done his best to overcome all the obstacles in order to reach the noble position of a member of the avende-garde.

 Beethoven with his music will always shed the beam of truth to the mankind. John Bennet was born around 1570. He composed many Madrigals. His first book of Madrigals was published in 1599. His religious works are also of major importance. His death probability happened in 1614. Giovanni Battista Vitali was a violinist. He was born around 1644 in Cremona In the position of a violinist in ST. Petronio Church in Bologna and then chapel master duke Modena presented many works to the music world. His partitas for violin and bass are among the famous musical works which like the Suit, present sequentially the dances of that era. Vitali died in 1692. After his death, many of his unpublished works were printed and published by his son Tommaso Antonio Vitali.

Guilloume Dufay was a cosmopolitan; musician solitary and free. His expeditions made him a mature, wise and experienced man. Born in 1397, he was indeed one of the most prominent figures of music in the first half of the 15th century. He has amalgamated the French, English and Italian techniques in such a unique way, which no one can manage to the trecento musical art owes him all of its glory and splendor and on the other hand, reveals how his beautiful, logical and symmetrical music has inspired the great Italian painters and sculptors. He used the jolly dance rhythms and the ethnic musical colors in the sacred music. The result is such a strange kind of benediction that no other musician can possibly achieve. Dufay died in 1474 but his perfect polyphonic mass, which is composed on the basis of Cantus Firmus, has made him an eternal figure Vergene Bella.

Geogia by Hoagy Carmichael, the American musician (b.1899), has a special sense and atmosphere. He was a composer of songs and lyrics, film actor and singer. Possessing a kind of a modern harmony, Carmicheal's works resemble the music of his country (d.1981). Among his other songs are Two Sleepy People, The Star Dust and Little Old Lady.

Chaconne by Arcangello Corelli is delicate, beautiful and worthy to hear. This dance originally appeared in the late 16th century in Spain where it had a free and energetic form. Later in the early years of 17th century it entered France as a graceful dance. In Corelli's hands, this piece has got a specific kind of beauty and depth. He was a prominent composer for string ensembles and a great violinist. His lifetime (1653-1713) was entirely devoted to musical activities.
