    Absolutely. He did compose some pieces that have a romantic touch to them, but then many other classical composers did. We still put them all under the "classical" label because they are from the 1730-1820 period.

    The classical period ran from circa 1730 to 1820, so Mozart who lived from 1756 to 1791 would definitely apply as being from that era. There is some controversy about whether or not his music fit the definition of classical, but that is mostly from people wishing to make a name for themselves. The majority of the music world considers him to be one of the three greatest composers from the Classical period. Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

    No, not at all. He is considered a pastoral composer which is entirely different. He lived from 1649-1802 so he spanned many different genres.
