Mozart vs Schubert


Mozart vs Schubert

1h without interval


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Symphony n° 40
Franz Schubert
Symphony n° 5

Mozart and Schubert: two geniuses who died too soon. Though written at an interval of 28 years, two of their symphonies are comparable, almost twins. Mozart’s Symphony n° 40 is a work of maturity. Its mood is strikingly tragic, while it also packs an expressive punch and is rhythmically flawless. Schubert’s Symphony n° 5, written while the composer was still very young, is reminiscent of his predecessor’s by its form, key, restrained expression and melodic wealth. As though Schubert aspired to Mozart’s ideal before setting off to explore uncharted, more personal territories.
