Admittedly I don't know much classical music as in actual specific pieces and composers, but I was brought up around it, and recently I've found that I enjoy listening to those 2 in particular, but that's just me. you've got centuries of music to choose from; take your time, and dip into everything.
Bach was part of the era where music HAD to be mechanical it was forbidden to express feelings in music during the Baroque times. Mozart began the transition from that mechanical type of music to feeling and expression. So you've got it backwards

Listen to both, and tell me who sounds more emotional. Bach's has more life to it. It may be more structured, but mozarts is too musically perfect, it's dry a lot of the time.

I see your point now, I had misinterpreted it. However, I would dissagre with the later statment. While it maybe almost musically "perfect" his muisc still has tons of emotion and reflects of time during his life. All Bach's music was about the church and his passion for it.

I'll admit i haven't heard very much of his work, But that I have heard has been lacking what I've been talking about. I just find Bach's work more lively, more stimulating.

I think its just a matter of preference so there is no right or wrong.

How about a rock rendition of Pachelbel's "Canon in D".

The Korean guy playing the solo got discovered via through YouTube because of his playing skills.
