Description - Mozart by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
These 21 symphonies, composed by Mozart between 1764 and 1771 while he was still a boy, are astonishing displays of his precocious genius. Reproduced from the authoritative Breitkopf and Hartel Complete Works Edition, they abound in the qualities that characterize his finest works: melodic richness, musical invention, and a much-imitated but unsurpassed grace.A splendid way for musicians and music lovers alike to savor and study the composer's youthful development and growing mastery of symphonic form, this new and modestly priced volume completes Dover's three-part cycle of Mozart's symphonic compositions, which include Symphonies Nos. 22-34 and Nos. 35-41. All are among the most performed and recorded works in the orchestral repertoire.
