    This discussion seems to have shifted a bit. Where is the discussion on what the composers did in their last year and comparison.

    what I would like to posit though - the possibility - that had Schubert had the 5 years extra life that Mozart had - he would have advanced more relative to where he was when he was 31 than Mozart did in the last 5 years of his life. This may well be that, as someone already pointed out - Mozart was more complete as a composer at 31 than Schubert - so was composing works equally impressive at 31 as those he composed at 36.

    Then excuse me for butting in.

    Sometimes I wonder why I put so much effort into this forum.

    This suggests that Mozart had peaked and had he lived, there would have been little to look forward to except his inevitable decline.

    I think your repy to Phil's views was correct as you are probably as baffled by his statements as I am.

    But that's false. I said he was a complete composer when he was 31. Are you saying his next 5 years output was not something we could have looked forward to? Had he lived I assume he would have continued exploring his art and delivering great works.
