Correct!

Joseph Haydn (1732–1809) was a contemporary of Mozart. The tune of the present-day Austrian national anthem was written by him.

I had never heard of Haydn before. I searched for 'List of Composers' when you said it's a composer.

I meant the German national anthem, not Austrian. Haydn himself was Austrian.
