Me and my friend on Friday morning were discussing the works of Beethoven and Mozart. Thus came the question who has more of a global impact and who was the bigger "genius?" Beethoven in my opinion has made far superior music to Mozart while he was deaf, yet Mozart never wrote second drafts of his music. It was perfect the first time. Here are my questions to see others opinions.
1.) Who is the bigger "genius" in your opinion and why?
2.) Who has made superior music (in your opinion) and why?
3.) Who has had more of a global impact?
P.S. No arguing in this thread. This is to hear others opinions. I can name a specific thread where arguing opinions has happened too much, and it was getting rather annoying.
