The problem with Mozart is that the notes are (sometimes) easy enough to play while the content is elusive, resulting in a feeling of bewilderment on the part of the honest player and utter boredom on the part of the trapped audience.
I have experienced both of those situations at close range.
Getting the two to become one has been the quest of my lifetime: a worthy quest, given the vast, to us mostly unknown, acoustical world to which his music refers all the time, every time.
