Mozart's Attic Sunday July 31st at 6:00 p.m.
It was 1765, and Mozart was now nine years old — old enough to write his own symphonies, thank you.
He already had three of them to his credit, but two of those were mostly the work of grown-ups. This fourth symphony might be a little clumsy, but that only goes to show that it was really his.
Mozart’s Fourth: it’s this week’s installment in our cycle of all 41 Mozart symphonies — to be continued.
