This is a list of composers of the Classical music era, roughly from 1730 to 1820. Prominent classicist composers[1][2][3] include Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Stamitz, Joseph Haydn, Johann Christian Bach, Antonio Salieri, Muzio Clementi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Luigi Boccherini, Ludwig van Beethoven, Niccolò Paganini, Gioachino Rossini and Franz Schubert.

As with the list of Romantic composers, this is a purely chronological catalogue, and includes figures not usually thought of as Classical-period composers, such as Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Georg Frideric Handel, as well as figures more often regarded as belonging to the early Romantic era, such as Carl Maria von Weber.
