    I interpreted "vs" as personal liking, so I picked Sibelius here. Depends on how the "vs" is defined, the answer could be different. Mozart's late symphonies are great, no question about that. Just I like Sibelius better (especially later ones) for their tone, color, etc, which Mozart was limited by the time. Nice to see many other Sibelius lovers lurking around

    For me this is very easy. Though I very much like the Sibelius symphonies, I love Mozart's late symphonies. So Mozart is my definite first choice.

    Mozart and Sibelius couldn't have been more different or incomparable.

    Again, they are apples and oranges. Hard to compare. Mozart got my vote.

    Why are apples and oranges hard to compare? They are both fruit! Which fruit do you like better? See, easy

    We need a tie breaker. Additional pieces to consider:

    Sibelius symphonies + violin concerto

    vs

    Mozart late symphonies + piano concerto #20

    I suggest you make a new poll.

    Mozart all the way. I love the way his musical style really matured in those late symphonies (39th is my favourite by the way)

    No need to, Mozart's leading again.

    Votes are favorable because it's Mozart's birthday today.
