it's always been a bit of a hazy subject, but do you think that beethoven is a romantic or classical composer?

ie. his use of rubato in his later works, and his emotional drive in his pieces (in comparison to haydn etc)

I just thought it might lead to a discussion

He straddled the line, his early is Classical and the Romantic period came during his career and he pursued it.

He's mainly romantic due to his changes in volume and style throughout a song, whereas someone like Mozart is the same style throughout an entire piece, but wikipedia lists him as transitional.

Also, on a related note, does anyone know if Baroque is a form of music or just an artistic movement?

It's a style of music, if you can hear a Harpsichord and it sounds fancy or decorative then it's probably Baroque.
