Asked in Architecture
Why greek architecture is called classical architecture?
Classical is a strange word to define. For the purpose of talking about Greek architecture, Classical means that it was made during the time period that is called classical antiquity. This generally includes Roman and Etruscan architecture as well. One could say that a Greek temple was a classical building, a Gothic cathedral is a Medieval building, and the cathedral in Florence is a Renaissance building. Those labels refer mostly to the time period the building was built in. It gets tricky in architecture when we start using words like classical to talk about buildings that were built in a different time period, but look like they were built in a classical time period.

What comes after the classical era?
The Classical period was in vogue around the time of 1750 to 1825. The period following the Classical period was called the Romantic period, and it was in vogue around the time of 1820 to 1900. Hope this answers your question! I can't give dates off the top of my head, but later 'periods' include Impressionism, (Ravel, Debussy) Neoclassical, and Modern.
Asked in Classical Music
What famous composer lived through the classical musical period?
Let's see...Beethoven was born during the Classical period, and died during the period he largely created (the Romantic era). It's not him. Early Classical era masters CPE Bach and Gluck were born during the Baroque period and died during the Classical period. It's not them either. Mozart was born during the Classical era in which he died, which is not really living through the whole Classical era. Haydn, on the other hand, was born in 1732, when the beginnings of the Classical era emerged, though contemporary classical music was still largely Baroque. Haydn lived a long life and died in 1809, during a time when the late Classical period and the early Romantic period (represented at that time by composers such as Beethoven, Paganini, and Weber) overlapped. So I guess Joseph Haydn is the closest answer out there.
