Thumbs down Mozart sucks

A few good melodies (i.e. the Molto Allegro of K.550), but overall, not impressive at all. Greatly overrated. None of his contemporaries are very interesting either. Must have been the time period. Go back to Bach or forward to Beethoven and beyond, and then there's good stuff...

I'm glad you're not trolling or anything.

Mozart speaks to the soul, Bach speaks to God.

Mozart can be a little thin -- good for light sopranos --

One of my favorite tenor arias is, however, "Un Aura Amarosa" in Cosi

ps -- Bach was a rabid anti-Papist

The title may suggest I'm trolling, but I don't think such an interpretation is in agreement with the content of the post.

jackinnj, I don't follow that 'speaks to the soul' thing at all. It sounds nice, but when I think about it, it doesn't mean anything.
And if you insist on it, then I should ask who you think, say, Schubert, speaks to (I'm guessing not his syphilis!)

As for Bach speaking to gAWD, I love the music yet I'm the biggest atheist on this spiral arm; the motivation behind music is to me largely irrelevant.

Now there's the reason. You get what you pay for.

Everybody tends to discover the composers in their own individual order. You will probably discover Mozart too one day, when you are ready for it. Somebody else maybe loves Mozart, but can't understand Beethoven, until suddenly, one day, it is all revealed...

Don't forget that interpretation means a lot in classical music. Mayby you have just happened to try boring performers?

Christer is very right,

The performance and interpretation means everything. The best Rhapsody in Blue was, IMO, Leonard Bernstein at the keys in New York... early CD... so-so recording... even some bad notes in the piano work, but the best music!

And Beethoven is always hard to listen to the first few times... it's complicated music.

Listen to Mozart's operas... that really the only opera I will listen to... he did his best work when pretty sopranos were involved.

and mozart a good catholic..which goes to show who had the intellectual greater depth, which also extends into his musical work.

Mozart - someone on cbc compared it to fast food...tastes nice but not much nutritional value.
