At last, a courageous stand against Mozart. It’s high time we reassessed his status as a member of the great troika that includes Beethoven and Bach. Of course the Mass in c minor is spine-chilling, Symphony #25 is flesh-crinkling, the art songs are as perfect in their way as Schubert’s and do something anatomically unnameable, etc., but not a small portion of his work is mechanical and ostentatious. This music is not played often, understandably, but Bach and Beethoven wrote nothing comparably pedestrian. Bring back the three B’s!
