Symphony No. 28 (Mozart)
The Symphony No. 28 in C major, K. 200/189k, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is his last piece in the "Salzburg series". The date of composition is uncertain; it probably dates from 17 or 12(?) November 1774 or 1773(?).
Mozart's 28th symphony is often put aside by musicologists because of its gallant character that one could describe as "transparent." The symphony was written early in Mozart's oeuvre, following the example of the twenty-fifth symphony.
It is written in four movements:
The first movement is notable for its rigorous character in the introduction. In its simple C major tonality, the melodies and themes are developed against the arpeggios in the first movement. In the finale, Mozart uses the brass more prominently than usual, offering a hint to Mozart's later symphony, the Symphony No. 41, KV 551, the "Jupiter".
