IMO, Mozart has a lot of material that I would describe as deep.

I'm not trying to tell you what to think, or that you should/must like Mozart it just seems a bit contradictory to me.
The thing about Mozart is that he is sitting on a throne, that so many musicians would earn to sit on a million times more than he does.

I didn't say that he is a bad musician or that there is absolutely no meaning in his music, but he is overrated times a zillion.

And yeah, I like Tchaikovsky. And I don't really see your point there :/
Mozart is Wiener Klassik(Vienna Classic?), while Tchaikovsky takes his elements from Russian Romantic Classic... :/ This is like comparing a banana to an avocado

My point wasn't to say that their music sounded similar, but rather that the playfulness and percieved lack of depth that you see in Mozart, I see just as prevalent, if not more so, in for example Tchaikovsky. That's why I thought it seemed contradictory to not (at least seemingly) hold him up to the same standards as you do with Mozart.

Don't get me wrong though, I have nothing against Tchaikovsky, but "profound" or "deep" are not among the first words I would use to describe his music.

oh, yeah. That might actually be true..
He's not the most deep guy there is,
but I love Tchaikovsky, I can't explain why.
might be the charm of russian classic

My top 1 is definitely Rachmaninoff. Is there anyone else who likes him?
Check Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 18 I. Moderato
It is really inspiring.

John Zorn, Gavin Bryars, Jon Hassell, John Oliver, and Phillip Glass to name a few, even though some of them were born more than 50 years ago.
