The masterpiece tell the performer what to do, and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the cocomposer what he ought to have composed.

Since they are in different styles, they are difficult to rank.

Personally, I would put it like this:

Brahms
Mend.
Mozart.

lol, real decisive here.

Haven't played Mozart or Medelssohn, but Brahms wasn't that hard. I'd say it is safer than the Mozart, or at least not as exposed as the Mozart music I've played is. Not sure bout the Mendel...

I, personally, think that Mozart is the hardest music to play with a professional sound.

that mendelssohn's fantasy takes a quite to master, the first movement has some tricky technical parts (though it's mostly easy technically) and musically preety difficult.

The Mozart. The Brahms is a piece of cake unless you want it to sound good, which is impossible, because it's Brahms.

You resurrected a ten year old thread purely to diss Brahms?

The truth that you fail does indeed hurt, albeit probably only for you.
