The paper discusses the background of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven and their respective eras of music. The paper shows how while they emulated each others' genius, they still differ according to the eras of their musical origins. The paper points out these differences and highlights how Bach was the explorer, pushing the boundaries within standardized conventions which Mozart subsequently expanded technically, and Beethoven expanded through improvisation.

From the Paper:

"Bach, Mozart and Beethoven are interlinked, not only by their popularity but by their historical lineage as innovators of classical music. It is important to note that these three composers consecutively brought about a transformation in music from a church and hymn like recital functions to a popularized artistic form. The precursor to these artists, including Bach and the parents of Beethoven and Mozart (as well as his teachers), were specially detailed/assigned with creating religion-based background and ambience music, which was not meant to appeal to the masses, but provide propriety to the church atmosphere, and signify religious and spiritual piety and solemnity."
