    Why pick on poor Mozart? He was a phenomenally creative and prolific composer. Sure, he's the name that every yutz with ears knows, but just because idiots call him genious it doesn't mean he wasn't one. Besides, there are so many other composers worth hating. Like Alban Berg and Schoenberg. What were these two guys thinking anyway???

    You’re right about Bach and LVB, but every time I hear a Mozart melody, I hear Raffi lyrics in my head.

    He was just a punk kid that never bothered to revise anything he committed to paper. What's that all about? I'm constantly editing my work on the staff, the piano roll, etc, and when it's all said and done I press it to vinyl so that it makes a nice sound when I shatter it with a sledgehammer.

    Cuz he wus rubbish. He couldn't write for crap. Mozart was a cream puff. Sure, Mozart could drink anyone under the table, so fair enough.

    Hell of a plumber by all accounts.

    Re: Mozart was a overrated Bumm!

    Our local classical station has been playing works wrongly "attributed" to Mozart. I've heard three. In the first case I missed the intro and was telling my son that it sounded like a classical piece written in the Romantic period by somebody trying to sound like Mozart. I was right! In another case the composer had done a remarkably good job, but there were a few passages that just didn't go anywhere. That's the Mozart difference. All of his notes mattered - even if some people thought that there were too many of them.
