Symphony No.25 in G minor, I. Allegro con brio

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 -1791).

In 1773 Mozart got a job as a court musician for the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg. It was a great opportunity - he was being paid to compose in nearly every possible musical genre, letting him flourish as a composer.

The Symphony No. 25 in G minor (K. 183/173dB) was written by the then 17 years old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, shortly after the success of his opera seria Lucio Silla; It was supposedly completed in Salzburg on October 5.

With its wide-leap melodic lines and syncopation, this symphony is characteristic of the Sturm und Drang style and is likely inspired by Joseph Haydn‘s Symphony No. 39 which is likewise in G minor.

He was throwing out symphonies and concertos furiously. But the composer gradually grew bored and frustrated with the life and society in Salzburg, as well as the lack of opportunities for getting operas performed.
