Joel's Fantasies & Delusions rating?

Where does Billy Joel's classical piano attempt of Fantasies and Delusions rank in real classical music terms?

How about "enjoyable, but not likely to be played more than three times per year". "Baby Grand" with Billy playing and singing with Ray Charles is good once a month or so.

Would Joel's classical composition rate with Mozart being under appreicated in his own time and place? Mozrt died practically penniless and without funds to pay for his own burial. Will time be kinder to Joel? The Sony/Columbia recording/engineering is excellent. Superb piano sound.
