Seriously doubt this CD came out in 1787, pretty sure they were still using 8 Track back then.
 

I didn't count, but estimate that it was only something like 22 "track" live performance back then.

uhhh….even better than Mozart?  Yikes!  I guess you don't have any 10s then....well I gave this a 10 if that helps....Long Live RP!!
 
I'd say Bach would be a very strong competitor. ;)
The segue from Tuesday Afternoon (The Moody Blues) was perfect.

JS Bach.  
Mozart... the original punk rocker.
Thank you Bill and Rebecca.  
Great masterpiece for the sunset tonight! Perfect timing Bill!
Some of these chord changes are moderately better than post-Cowell pop..
Wow, this guy is pretty good! Way better than Electric Light Orchestra!

I mean, c'mon, it's a 10 if I ever saw one.
delightful isn't it? 
This music was featured in the Martin Scorsese film After Hours. That's what I always think of when I hear this piece .

Not engaging?

Some music, as this is, should not be analysed to death. I'm pretty sure that Mozart got it right.
Let it lift you and carry you places only your mind can go. Wind in your face and all that.
It is superb.
Live versions are a hoot!  Because the start is fortissimo (LOUD), all the string players attack vigorously, as if to gouge those fabulously-constructed wooden instruments.

And they're synchronized to the music!

Oh Boy... Tuesday Afternoon on a Tuesday afternoon - followed by a little Night music..

RP is the real deal
Brilliant of course, but for me over-played (in general, not on RP) and not engaging

Love the low ratings.  Where's the bass?  No drums?  Good melody but weak delivery.
lol. same goes for this time ^_^

Different (& better) performance now. A bit snappier, this one (runs almost a minute less in time).

They are the right notes, you're just in the wrong place.

Yes.  It's the anti-allegro.

18th century Mick Jagger.  His music sounds vigorous and sensual to me.  Probably had groupies chasing him all the time -- in a courtly manner, of course.

Nice to hear something different for a change. Which is the main point to listening to RP!
but it's only 5:15................pm

If Beethoven rated this a 3 who rated it a 1?   Axl Rose?
10 although he's a fucking sell out.
Just turned it to 11 and rocked the neighborhood.  Classical Thunder indeed!

Thanks. You "rock" too, Mr John
A 10, but then I'm slightly biased

Salieri.

One of my favorite scenes from "Amadeus" is the older Salieri playing his compositions for someone who doesn't recognize a thing. Then Salieri (a transcendent Murray Abraham) plays this, the Allegro from "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik," and the guy gushes, "YOU wrote THAT?"

Very nice.  Many classical tunes would work well into the RP mixes.
So overplayed.  I must have heard it every day for the past 200 years...
Brilliant, without a variant's.
For those who wish to follow along with the musicians:-
Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus: Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, K. 525

Of course, You'll need a microscope.

A series of pieces like this reminds me why I love RP so much... I'm upping my support!  John

Completely agree. Not much emotion or liveliness to this version. 

One Boston DJ—it may have been the renowned Robert J. Lurtsema—swore that he got a request from a listener to play "I'm Inclined to Knock Music" by "that guy Mozart."  The DJ honored the request.

I gave this selection a '7' just to give Bill credit for playing something like this in the context of a Rock mix. Would Stravinsky be too "eclectic?" :wink: Oh, *now* I get it -- Eine Kleine into Eleanor Rigby, tying the strings together (sorry). Something from Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" would have been better in this spot, imho.
Bill, since you seem to like alternative versions/covers a lot, how about finding a nice punk or metal version of this?
