Mozart received a commission in Paris to compose a double concerto for flute and harp for the Comte de Guines. De Guines was a favourite of Marie Antoinette and a fine flautist. With its poetic, serene second movement and glorious shades of colour from the rarely heard period harp, it’s no wonder this piece has become a truly beloved Mozart work.
Get ready for Mozart’s last symphony. The mythological name Jupiter symbolises the classical deity and virtues of strength and wisdom. It is a triumphant and exciting masterpiece. The final coda of the Jupiter Symphony is a miracle!
