Symphony No.40 in G minor K550 1st movement Mozart Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This symphony is the middle one of Mozart's last three symphonies, all composed in the summer of 1788. It is pathetically wistful, agitated and forlorn, in utter contrast to the cheerfulnes of No 39 and the radiance and triumph of No 41.

This 1st movement opens with an accompaniment figure of broken G minor chords, played by the violas, soon followed by the first theme played on the violins, with the second violins one octave below the firsts. Later the 2nd theme emerges in the relative major key of Bb major.
