"C o D: Defend the Indefensible" vs. "Defend the Indefensible: C o D"

People are tinkling his scratchings somewhere, as we speak. As such, his wig prolly fetches the price of a new condo....or brownstone.

I'm guessing you don't mean these guys......

I've never really gotten much enjoyment out of his music. It's quite predictable.

"Marriage of Figaro" as portrayed by Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny...the only defence necessary.

only predictable because you've heard them so many times.

Er, is Nick S a beekeeper then?

I liked Mozart in Animal House!

p.j. otm, but on the other hand even "what's opera doc" can't convince me to like wagner.

The Magic Flute was a hodgepodge.

Matt Helgeson stole my goddamned joke.

The Magic Flute has been misinterpreted, it is Mozart's ode to his own bed flute, famed in certain circles in Vienna, many considered it quite magical.

the last movement of the Jupiter symphony is some of the best music ever.

(not to mention the rest of the it ...)

The second movement of his 23rd piano concert is the most beautiful piece of classical music ever written.

I was thinking of starting a Defend the Indefensible: Fur Elise thread, but instead I will just civilly solicit posters' opinions of that turd.

ARGH wrong thread

Doritos Loco Parentis (Hurting 2), Monday, 21 April 2014 21:22 (six years ago) link

you could defend the indefensible: rondo alla turca itt

hundreds-swarm-dinkytown (Jon Lewis), Monday, 21 April 2014 21:29 (six years ago) link

it is grating in kind of a similar way

Doritos Loco Parentis (Hurting 2), Monday, 21 April 2014 22:31 (six years ago) link

I prefer the Dave Brubeck version.

the other day i found a mix cd i'd made as a high schooler w printed liner notes advertising "mozart's haunting moonlight sonata"

difficult listening hour, Monday, 21 April 2014 23:08 (six years ago) link

rondo alla turca is sweet

Little Saint Hugh of Lincoln (nakhchivan), Monday, 21 April 2014 23:25 (six years ago) link

unlike fur elise its not a standalone work and should be seen in context

Little Saint Hugh of Lincoln (nakhchivan), Monday, 21 April 2014 23:27 (six years ago) link

The B and C sections of Fur Elise are great

in the really lame laurel canyon documentary that came out this year, tom petty says brian wilson is comparable to mozart. the whole thing is peak ok boomer and peak gen x emptiness via jakob dylan and beck saying extremely boring things with dead gazes.

Way too many notes.

The GeirBot (Geir Hongro), Wednesday, 27 November 2019 12:28 (eight months ago) link

Not enough, you mean.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 12:29 (eight months ago) link

All the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

'Skills' Wallace (Tom D.), Wednesday, 27 November 2019 12:31 (eight months ago) link

the best of the understuffed
