Although each is very different from the other, both are among the most popular symphonic works ever composed. "Symphony No. 40" is a symphonic gem, from the passion and urgency of its opening measures to the dash and vitality of its closing rondo. "Symphony No. 41, " by contrast, is a grand, full-bodied, imposing masterwork the peak of Mozart's symphonic expression.Both are published here in full score with original instrumentation and bar-numbered movements. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike."
