history meme: 01/10 moments | Mozart and Beethoven meeting, 1787

The famous meeting would have occured in Mozart’s home in Vienna in March or April of 1787. The house is a rather famous one, with many great events in the history of music having taken place there (it was there that Haydn is said to have praised Mozart in front of his father, it was there almost a century later that Julius Epstein referred to Johannes Brahms as “the heir of Beethoven”, and there Mozart wrote his operas “The Marriage of Figaro” and “Don Giovanni” ). Exactly how the meeting went is unknown. Some believe that a young 16 years old Beethoven did meet Mozart and impressed the older composer with his budding talent, eliciting even a comment from Mozart to his wife Constanza “Remember that boy’s name. One day you will hear it often”. But others believe that Mozart was not impressed and actually rejected Beethoven as a student. And still others say they never met. 
But Beethoven did want to study composition with Mozart, and was unable to stay more than a few weeks in Vienna when he found out his mother was dying in Bonn, so they could never meet after 1787.
