✴ Humble beginnings - During Mozart’s time, the harp was not a commonly used instrument and was treated more as a plucked piano.
✴ Pure genius - One of the most awe-inspiring moments in music occurs in the last movement of the Jupiter Symphony when Mozart sets five themes into motion simultaneously during the fugal section.
- Mozart Così fan tutte Overture, K. 588
- Mozart Concerto - TBA
- Mozart Symphony No. 41 in C Major, K. 551 “Jupiter”
Mozart’s son said he considered the Finale to his
father’s Sinfonia in C which Salomon christened the
Jupiter to be the highest triumph of Instrumental
Composition, and I agree with him.”
