    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.
