That's funny.Measly Mozart, he-he.A quick search has brought the following quote of Stravinsky:"I remember being handed a score composed by Mozart at the age of eleven. What could I say? I felt like de Kooning, who was asked to comment on a certain abstract painting, and answered in the negative. He was then told it was the work of a celebrated monkey. 'That's different. For a monkey, it's terrific.' " (London Magazine - March 1967)Apparently, Mr Stravinsky was a witty man:"Never look at the trombones. You'll only encourage them."
