Mozart was a child prodigy. By the age of five, his imagination and creativity enabled him to write remarkable symphonies that were better than those of other musicians.   


Never see the phrase "those of other" before, I think it just means "some", right?
Thanks in advance.

Situation is as bad as he could remember.

The sentence is from voa, I wonder whether is it a common saying?

about 'those of other'

here 'those' refers to 'symphonies'
and 'other' had better be used to modify 'musicians'.
'those of other musicians'= the symphonies of other musicans.

听得多了,也就习惯了。

其实我也不确定是否那么说就很地道。
美国之音里面也会有错误,不过少些而已。
晚安!
