which is not to say beethoven had no baroque compositions or compositions
with barroque influence - in other words, the intersect between beethoven
and baroque is not the null set.

Actually, Beethoven started out classical, and, some would say,
singlehandedly founded the Romantic movement.
Example composers, as I remember being taught in my 1976 high-school music
composition classes, and with not inconsiderably fuzziness, and included
Romantic: Later Beethoven (5th and later)
Wagner/all three Straus(es)/
Modern: Later Stravinsky/Ives/Schoenberg
(my own guess, since 1976 :-))
Minimalist: later Glass/most new music that sounds listenable :-),
