  • Symphony No. 35 Mozart’s “Haffner” is one of the most joyous works of the composer. Written in 1782, just a year after moving from Salzburg to Vienna when he was only 26 years old. Her joyful beginning and a noisy finale represent the feeling of liberation and excitement out of life in a new city.
  • The premiere of the Symphony No. 1 in C minor Brahms took place in 1876, after 21 years after it was written. It offers a dramatic, tearful Allegro and ends with a joyful finale in C major, reminiscent of so many listeners of “Ode to joy” by Beethoven.
