OK, let's continue our discussion about tonal colors in the music of Mozart and Chopin from the thread Chopin as pianist / Chopin's Philosophy.

I don't think that Mozart's melody is bright and simple. Listen to the first part of his piano concerto No.20. It's even darker than many Chopin's works. Chopin's music is also simple, not like Liszt's. I think this point is the same for both Mozart and Chopin. They never wrote any redundant note!

I disagree. To me Mozart's melodies are too perfect and symmetrical and primpy and happy and simple and bright, etc. etc. etc. Some of his piano are dark too, though, like his Fantasias, which I absolutely adore!

All composers have bright and dark tones in their music. So do Mozart and Chopin. It's hard to generalize for each composer though.
