Mozart's last symphonies have been surrounded by myths and tales for most of their history. He wrote them at an astonishing rate in the summer of 1788, yet these pieces seemed to have been neither commissioned nor due for performance. From the brooding angst of the great G Minor Symphony (No. 40) to the triumphant and jubilant “Jupiter” Symphony (No. 41), Mozart infuses the form of the symphony with a new kind of romantic expression. Among all musical accomplishments, these astonishing symphonies are among humanity's timeless treasures.

    I've been an oboist for the past ten years, and a lover of classical music all of my life. Syphony No 40 is a classic that anyu musician and lover of classical music should have!
