Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Secondary List Value: 

Symphony No. 40 in g minor, K 550

One of three symphonies composed by Mozart in 1788, No. 40 was written at a dark time in Mozart’s life, when the circumstances of his life have been described as “pitiful.”  The instrumentation is sparse and the opening theme is uneasy and agitated; quite different than Symphony No. 41, nicknamed Jupiter.
