I hear a few strains in Beethoven's music.....that I "wonder" if Mozart heard, and "borrowed" from...

Beethoven.....b. 1770. d. 1827

Mozart....b.1756. d. 1791.

JUST THERE to "consider".....the years that over-lapped.

Here, some Beethoven:




Compare to Mozart's "Symphony 40":



Thoughts??? Which was more "genius" (I vote for Mozart).....AND, not because he may have heard Beethoven's music.....(there were no 'i-Pods' back then!! LOL!!!).

Or that Beethoven heard from Mozart.
Theres a wikipedia article on it here.

But it wouldnt surprise me if there was also some the other way. Composers were borrowing each others ideas all the time.
Still do.

My vote goes to Beethoven simply because he did all that while being completely deaf.

If true......:


My vote goes to Beethoven simply because he did all that while being completely deaf.



Then, "yeah!!"

(sorry.....if any who are deaf read this...not intending to make fun. It's just...well, a REAL artist can "hear" the music, by reading the notes, on a page..NOT me, of course..
).

Well when he started composing music he wasn't deaf, he started going deaf in his twenties.
He eventually went completely deaf and continued to compose & perform!

that 'discussion' aside....


My vote 'remains' for Mozart.....he knew how to add in a "chorus". to his music.

Example:



And...I HATE religions!! In all forms....(but, can respect the beautiful music that people have made, based on such a "silly" concept!!)....
