Hello, my name is Sean (obviously!), I'm new here, and yes this is my first post. I've been "lurking" on this forum and others for a while as an enthusiast of classical music, and would like to know your opinion on something!
What is "substance"? As a fan of Mozart, it's something that comes up a lot: "Mozart sounds pretty but his music lacks substance!". I'm just curious, in your opinion, as to how one would describe "substance" within music.
No, this is not an argument, I don't want to "challenge" you to make a point that Mozart has substance or something, I'm just genuinely curious. All replies are, of course, welcome!
