Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart : Symphony No.40 in G minor (1st movement) KV550

Mozart - Symphonies 40 & 41 in miniature score Mozart's Symphony No.40 in G minor is one of his famous last 3 symphonies all composed during one summer in 1788. Even people who claim no familiarity with classical music will recognise the opening bars from their frequent use on television. It is one of very few symphonies which Mozart wrote in a minor key, and its minor key perhaps displays some of the composer's inner feelings that are not so evident in the majority of his works. Certain characteristics of this symphony or at least the first movement may have served as a model for Beethoven's 5th Symphony in C minor. You can play the full orchestral music of the 1st movement displayed below where the video provides a piano roll animation, or print out the corresponding Conductor's Score, and each of the individual parts for Flute, Oboes, Clarinets in B-flat, Bassoons, Horn in B-flat, Horn in G, 1st Violins, 2nd Violins, Violas, and Cellos and Double Basses. So that pianists don't feel left out, we also have an arrangement for Piano Solo.

In a good value deal, the score of the complete symphony No.40 together with Symphony No.41 "The Jupiter" are available in a Dover Miniature edition from The Music Room.
