The second movement from "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" is almost unbearably slow. It's like being stuck behind an elderly motorist. You just want to get out and push their car, do SOMETHING to get it moving.
The movement from Beethoven's ninth symphony almost sounds like it has sour notes being played. Really? Wrong notes? Just because Beethoven was deaf when he composed it doesn't mean you have to sound like you're deaf while playing it.
The excerpt from Haydn's 100th symphony doesn't sound a whole lot better. The strings and oboe are painfully out of tune during the quieter passages. Seriously, was this orchestra on strike? And when the cymbals come in during the forte parts? Ugh, it just sounds kind of silly.
The two piano pieces I think you can keep. The rest, move to trash.
