    Haydns lessons to Beethoven

    I am big Beethoven fan and read about his lessons with Haydn and that one of the things he learned from him was the motive's developments that Beethoven is famous about. Does anyone know where I can find more info about what exactly Beethoven and Haydn were talking about or is this completely unknown?

    greetings,
    André

    I don't remember the details, but one of my professors said that Beethoven said that he didn't get much out of his lessons from Haydn.
    However, Beethoven's string quartets written afterward are more like Haydn's string quartets than Beethoven's string quartets written before.

    I also read somewhere that the nobleman Waldstein--after whom the Waldstein Sonata was named--paid for Beethoven's lessons.
