Quote from: scottscheule on April 19, 2007, 04:20:17 PMThe clarinet concerto is the strongest composition--though at the same time it's more reflective, cooler than the others.
Quote from: scottscheule on April 19, 2007, 04:20:17 PMI love the rondos on the horn concertos, especially the second.
Quote from: Daverz on April 19, 2007, 06:14:04 PMListening to the "Szell Conducts and Plays Mozart" set. This is some good shit.
Quote from: springrite on April 19, 2007, 05:54:07 PMFor a couple of years now I only listen to Mozart's lesser known or lesser played compositions, such as the early (or otherwise lesser known) operas. I am a bit tired of the familair or catchy ones, the only exception being my favorite Mozart non-operatic composition -- the Clarinet Quintet.
Quote from: Mozart on April 08, 2007, 06:59:08 PMIn terms of counterpoint how does Mozart's requiem match up against earlier composers?
Quote from: Haffner on June 25, 2007, 04:10:31 AMThere are people whom will dislike me for this: I find Mozart's use of imitation (as Jochanan pointed put, it's hard to call them "fugues" for the most part) far more interesting and natural than alot of J.S. Bach. I am certainly aware of the enormity of J.S. Bach's achievements (been listening to him for well over 25 years, Haydn and Mozart only 1 and a half). And my appreciation for the abovementioned B. Concertos, the Violin Concerto in D minor, and the Tocattas, etc. is truly heartfelt, profound. But I guess I've never been much of a fan of too much "mathematics" in music.
Quote from: Tancata on June 25, 2007, 05:29:03 AMWhat about Bach's vocal music? IMO, the rigour only adds to the music there...
Quote from: Haffner on June 25, 2007, 05:32:52 AMYou found me out! I realize how many fantastic Bach works I left out; trust me, Johann Sebastian is very highly regarded by me. I'm overall quite a "fan" of his work. It's just that the other composers mentioned above (especially Mozart) just tend to seem less mathematical on the average (hey! A bit incongruous, that sentence, "mathematical, average").
Quote from: Tancata on June 25, 2007, 11:42:18 AMGreat post, donwyn!But as to the question that launched this little digression: I would say that Mozart could write pretty much as well as anyone in the old strict styles...well, except for one...
