This is a listing of Classical composers; that is, only those people who wrote music primarily during the Classical period (1750 - 1820). It is not for everyone who ever wrote orchestral music, even though this is often lumped together as "classical."
Please submit sites dealing with the composers and music of the Classical Period, including biographies, discographies, analyses of compositions, or bibliographies. Please do not submit individual composers'' names to this category. Instead, please submit them to the correct category or alphabetical listing under Composers (or Contemporary Composers if they are still living).
