CLASSICAL OPUS no.80

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – “Symphony no.40, 1st movement in G minor”

ヴォルフガング・アマデウス・モーツァルト – 「交響曲第40番、第1楽章のGマイナー」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 31 minutes

Originally composed in separate segments, this zenith of 18th century orchestration relies on dynamic crescendos, unpredictable emotionalism of the home key (G minor) and head-on confrontation between competing melodies.  Canonical and totemic in its closing euphoria, it remains potent as ever.

A REFLECTION

A splendid night it was . . . .

In the clear moonlight we were loath to go to bed,

But at last drunkenness overtook us;

And we laid ourselves down on the empty mountain,

The earth for pillow, and the great heaven for coverlet.
