It's just Mozart, not God! Operas are routinely performed with major cuts,
concertos with personalized cadenzas, symphonies with tempos chosen only to
be different from someone else's interpretation, etc. The earth will not
be destroyed by this, and neither will the music.
I couldn't agree more. This whole discussion seems to be getting a bit
tiresome. Why not just enjoy the wonderful music performed by wonderful
musicians and get on with your life. Enough already!
