Whilst not wanting for a moment to pretend that the early Mozart symphonies
are works of genius, to say that they are "as boring as shit" really is a
little juvenile. They are charming little pieces that deserve more attention
- and for what it is worth they are all on my iPhone. And I listen to them.

Any and all of them display far more mature musicality than 99% of
pop/rock/etc music.

Look at how much Mozart gets zero play time these days.=A0 When was the
last time an orchestra scheduled a performance of Mozart's - I don't
know, any numbered symphony below 20.=A0=A0 Or anything by Haydn below
#98. Hardly ever?=A0 You think an orchestra would have a sell-out
performance with works by Telemann, early Hadyn symphonies and other
lesser known early Classical composers?=A0 I doubt it. That stuff is
boring as shit!
