Friends, I need your help.
I would like to collect opinions or phrases given by great composers or great figures about Mozart or his work: Comments and comparisons with the work of other musicians.

I need them for a project at school, also to know the impact of Mozart on culture.

Thank you

I owe very, very much to Mozart; and if one studies, for instance, the way in which I write for string quartet, then one cannot deny that I have learned this directly from Mozart. And I am proud of it! ~ Arnold Schönberg

This boy will throw us all into the shade. ~Johann Adolf Hasse, on Mozart, aged 11

The past is never, as our jargon implies, a fixed quantity; it is in movement...Mozart, for his contemporaries, was not the serene classic, the apostle of measure and perfection that so many of his nineteenth century admirers, and even some today, have liked to conjure up. On the contrary, he was a painter of intense and even sombre canvasses, of large scope and vast design. ~Roger Sessions
