Mozart | 41. Senfoni ‘JupiterMolto allegro

This glorious piece of music is the last movement of the last symphony Mozart composed.  

George Grove wrote of this movement, “Mozart has reserved all the resources of his science, and all the power, which no one seems to have possessed to the same degree with himself, of concealing that science, and making it the vehicle for music as pleasing as it is learned. Nowhere has he achieved more.”

The fugal coda combines five motifs:

41 is the best. Many like 40 and it is a graceful piece, but aside from it’s beauty not an innovative work. But the 4th movement of Jupiter is utter perfection and the first time a composer writes a five voiced fugue into the symphonic form. 41 will always have a special place in my ear.

TRYING TO READ ANOTHER CLEF THAT YOU’RE NOT FLUENT IN

prokopetz:

Music Fact: Classical musicians are 50% more likely to suffer permanent hearing loss than rock musicians. This is almost entirely due to exposure to bass drums; a single orchestral bass drum is louder than an electric guitar at maximum amplification, and provides one-third of the audible power of a standard 75-piece symphony orchestra.
