A fussy, effete lttle man, whose own character is well expressed by that of the protagonist in Don Giovanni, going through life transfixed with his own navel (but that's too high).
In violin concerto no. 5 in A major, he's using the noble instrument of Stradivarius, Guarneri and Amati as his own pudenda, a prolonged act of cultural onanism. His failure even to attempt to approach God in emulation of the Blessed angels, shows how granting the boon of total, infused knowledge is casting pearls before swine to a corrupt little human.
He lived as if his genius had been his own invention, as if the gift of glimpsing God's music with his angelic children (see Music of the Ainur, Silmarillion, Tolkien), instead of a being a supreme gift, personally justified and legitimized him.
At first I was mystified that Wagner despised Mozart. But Wagner regarded his own musical gift a negligible, just a platform for his dramatic presentations.
Your talent is God's gift to you. You can't become autonomous by straining against the traces, trying to use genius to become your own god. The greatest creature, Lucifer, the light bearer, came to think of himself as The Light.
Listening to all of Mozart's piano sonatas in order of composition, you see the shock of his discovery of Sebastian Bach, a man who lived humility in his motto Only For the Glory of God, soli Deo Gloria. Mozart started composing the most stilted, artificial piano sonatas in Sebatian's style, veering off course from his own path to seeing God's course for his life. The minuetto of the Jupiter, his last symphony, beneath the facile elegance of the greatest classic polyphony, shows the eyes of despairing, pathetic little man who couldn't live up to the singular gift which had been granted to him, because he tried to use it for self-worship instead of its true purpose, glorifying the Almighty.
Your link only goes to an opening page for Youtube rather than a specific video. Thus, no one will know where your opening post is from.
What difference does it make? God spoke through Mozart and that’s all I need to know.
And if one hasn’t heard Enzio Pinza in The Marriage of Figaro, one probably doesn’t know what I’m talking about.
Never much cared for Mozart’s work — too mechanical and tedious.
I suppose this means we’ve got to like really give up Tchaikovsky too, then.
Mozart’s music is formulaic, repetitive and uses the same patterns over and over in a scripted, redundant fashion that seems to repeat the same themes in an uninventive, stilted and reiterative fashion.
And he does the same things over and over with simple embellishment on what are basic motifs that are patterned and reused.
And then he does that again.
And the pudenda thing too.
As if this critical review isn’t a perfect example of onanism, lol.
Then you’ve never heard the Rite Of Spring by Igor Stravinsky then, have you?
Oh absolutely, I bet no one will even know his name in a thousand years.
The biggest load of B.S I’ve read since the last time I perused the transcript of a Hillary screech - I mean speech.
Best post of thread.
Thanks, very funny. Mozart's music is just a tremendous joy to listen to.
as the old saying goes - those who cannot - teach, and in this case this article's author is a real Effete moron who is over educated and thus totally stunted
I wonder if anyone here actually has seen a Mozart opera in a theater. They are revolutionary; brilliant, beautiful, funny, tragic - the very essence of good theater. (This is a general question not aimed at you in particular.)
Number nine ain’t bad, either.
Wow. Who do you like?
God spoke through Mozart and gave him melodies straight from heaven. That he doesn’t meet YOUR standards is irrelevant to me or to the world, frankly. Go back in your hole.
(My comment is of course for the author of this screed).
Someone here doesn’t know how to read. Now go back to your hole and learn to read and interpret posts. Thank you.
Anyone who writes songs entitled “Lick my arse...clean and dry” is OK with me.
I’m more of a Bach, Haydn & Beethoven fan.
Bach for the math & religion side of me.
Haydn for the “quieter moments”.
And there are some theories that posit Beethoven as the progenitor of rock, i.e, music as spectacle and drama.
