There was a brief period that Mozart and Kraus resided a block from one another. Kraus was a Free mason too, which raises the chances a little, but not that much.

In days of old, musicians were servants to a man of nobel rank. So, the musicians wore livery when they performed. Beethoven in his Bonn years did, as well as Haydn in his Esterhazi years to name a...

Sorrano;

The trombone is older than you think. At the time of Castello, the trombone (or sackbut) had a narrower bore and smaller bell than the classical or modern trombone. The sonata quarta that...

Dario Castello (1590-1658):
Sonata quarta

It is an interesting piece. The 4 instruments are violin, 'cello, trombone(!), and keyboard. The trombone played fast running passages, doubling the violin.

Dvorak was traditional in his symphonies and placed his slow movements 2nd. You would have to look into his chamber works where he might have broken tradition.

I believe that Mozart sent a letter to his father praising the string quartets of Ignatz Pleyel. So, Mozart could compliment a fellow musician rather than being just plain nasty.

I think Beethoven's "The Flea" is absolutely hilarious, especially the ending where the pianist tries to squash the flea with his thumb on the keyboard.

I have Brahms' complete solo piano music. Brahms had a few WoO's in that genre. I would imagine there are others amongst his other genres. Not a lot like Beethoven but a few.
