Every classical music lover knows that there are no two works identical to each other, since each has its own unique characteristics and identity, and this holds true for the artists who stand behind them. The famous giants who composed these works were very different in their nature, temperament, and manner of creation and work. Yet, despite the high class of great composers like Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, and Brahms, they all had one thing in common - they were just as human as we are, and so surely each of us shares something of their great personality. So let's find out, with this fascinating personality quiz, which of the greatest classical composers is hiding in you, and perhaps just waiting to break out and reveal itself.

You are Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Your answers indicate that in your soul you are Mozart, the most prolific musical genius and composer of all time. It seems that you too, are fruitful in your life, outstanding in your work and admired by your higher-ups and the people around you. Like the harmonious musical philosophy that guided Mozart, you also manage your life in wonderful harmony, and you know how to balance hard work, talent, and the desire to enjoy and see the world. You are an independent person with quick comprehension who knows how to connect with people, and although you may have a slightly odd sense of humor (Mozart was known for his fondness of bathroom jokes), everyone wants to be around you.
You are Ludwig van Beethoven
Your answers indicate that in your turbulent soul you are Ludwig van Beethoven, the composer who broke all the boundaries and earned an unquestionable admiration. Despite the severe hearing problems he suffered, Beethoven insisted on pushing the boundaries around him, and you seem to be just like him-ambitious in your soul, a rebel who’s always trying to change and do things differently, an independent person who is run by the heart and emotions that floods you time to time. Others may regard you as a stubborn, over-tempered, and an overly emotional person, but do not be upset about it-Beethoven was also seen this way in his day, and was still recognized as a true genius.
You are Johann Sebastian Bach
Your answers indicate that in your soul you are Bach, the learned composer, who produced quite a few of the most famous classical works. Bach was a wise man, no doubt about this - from his youth he had acquired a comprehensive education, from music through to history and physics, and was considered a full-fledged scholar. Just like him, it seems that you, too, are thirsty for knowledge, and don’t stop learning every single day. Among your acquaintances you are considered to have a remarkable intellectual capacity, you are a fan of order, discipline, and organization-just like Bach's well-constructed works. Even if not everyone appreciates your genius today, don’t worry, Bach's greatness was discovered relatively late - but today he is considered one of the greatest classical composers.
You are Johannes Brahms
Your answers indicate that in your soul you are Johannes Brahms, the revered composer who has gained fame with some of the first-class works of classical music of all time. Like Brahms, the standards you set for yourself are very high and you strive for perfection, which is expressed in everything you do. Despite Brahms' great success and popularity, he remained a modest man with a simple lifestyle who donated his money to his relatives and young musicians, and you seem to have this modesty and generosity too. Brahms was a great admirer of Beethoven, who had a lot of influence on his music, and you probably also have a close relative who is a role model to you.
