French composer Étienne Méhul stands in the history books as the first composer to be labeled a "Romantic". His first symphony was written in the same year as Beethoven’s fifth, and shares a similar dramatic style. It would be revived thirty years later by Felix Mendelssohn, another figure of the early Romantic era.
