Mozart: Symphony No. 29 in A Major, K. 201 (Berliner Philharmoniker, Claudio Abbado)
I can’t link this file because the owner will not share it, for whatever reason, so you have to find it yourself, but it’s a really wonderful recording.
(This is Gardiner, and it’s good, but I prefer the recording with Abbado.)
This is symphony is iconic, and listening to I simply can’t believe this was written byt an 18 year old teenager. I’m not doubting the facts. I’m simply stunned at the genius.
This is, along with Symphony No. 25, the so called “Little G Minor”, one of his very famous early symphonies. It is, in every way, a toe tapper. About this time is when Mozart became the mature genius we are used to today, and he wrote this symphony in Salzburg.
- I. Allegro moderato
- II. Andante
- III. Menuetto
- IV. Allegro con spirito
- 2 oboes
- 2 horns
