    Certain posters are starting to complain. To me, it's simply a case of just pun-ishment.

    I think Mozart would be pleased. The pun has been called the lowest form of humor, but no form was too low for him.

    It is off to the atonal music thread for both of you until you learn to behave yourselves like decent folk.

    • What makes Mozart's music so great? Let's see, huh…I guess that it is because it does not succumb to overly-Romantic tendencies. It retains an Apollonian classical detachment. At least, that's how I rationalize it. Look at me, I'm digging Mozart! Yeah, man, I'm really getting' into it! See me dancing?

    Not really. One has to be learned to appreciate many of mine. If one knows Notung about CM, most of my puns simply get finessed right through the uninitiated.

    Who says Mozart's music is great or any composer's music is great? What makes a composer's music stand out as great? Is there a greatness committee? Why Mozart? Why not Tubin?

    I had a can of greatfruit and orange slices. Now THAT was great!!

    What makes Mozart's music grate? The same thing that makes cheese grate: a sharp grater and a little elbow grease!

    Ummmmmmm! I love grated cheese images. If only they could make the computer convey the aroma! They have video conferencing on the web why not transmission of smells?

    While were at it, let's just throw out value structures all together. Excuse me while I go listen to 100 metronomes started at different times. Ciao!

    Okay, forum dwellers. What would you do if I gave you the secret answer as to why Mozart's music is so great? You must promise me not to use the secret to become another one of the great composers. Can you do that? Can you promise me? Otherwise, I will simply bury the secret under the deepest sub-forum I can find on TC.
    Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Goldstein doesn't sound that good anyway.

    While I'm waiting for responses, I'm off for some cheerios & milk; some Whole-y Gruel.

    I think what happened is the OP asked a theoretical question for which no one had a theoretical answer. Fun and puns ensued. Does that about cover it?

    Are you sure? Are you confusing improvisation and embellishment with aleatory?
