Catalogue No: ASO001034
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts
This sheet music for Mozart’s G minor Symphony No 40, First Movement, includes the instrumental parts, and Piano accompaniment with parts for Violin 3, clarinets, Alto and Tenor Saxophone. It has been slightly modified to accommodate the abilities of student or amateur Orchestras by K. W. Rokes. One of the touchstones of the classical repertoire, Mozart’s Symphony No 40 in G minor was written over a very few weeks in Vienna in 1788 at the end of the composer’s tragically short life. Having turned away from composition in the symphonic form for some years, Mozart returned to it with a creative fury that summer, composing the three great and eternal symphonies, Nos 39, 40 and 41 in a white heat of creative outpouring. Symphony No 40 is the only one of the three in a minor key, allowing its classical elegance and beauty to be interwoven with drama and emotion.
