Who came first Mozart or Beethoven?
Beethoven was born in Bonn in 1770, about 14 years after Mozart (born Salzburg, 1756).
Why did Mozart not use B-flat?
He didn’t use B-flat because he had no need for it; instead he used B, which is the German-language term for that pitch. B he employed very frequently indeed. (In one of his more Italianate moods, he would have called it si bemolle.)
What scales did Mozart use?
Historically, composers like Mozart used the harmonic minor scale to do exactly that. Using the harmonic minor instead of the natural minor allowed them to give stronger resolutions and cadences within their works. And if we look at A minor compared to A major, it makes sense. A major has 3 sharps: F#, C#, and G#.
What does in G Minor mean?
G minor is a minor scale based on G, consisting of the pitches G, A, B♭, C, D, E♭, and F. Its key signature has two flats. Its relative major is B-flat major and its parallel major is G major.
