Symphony No. 17 in G major, K. 129, is the second of three symphonies completed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in May 1772, when he was 16 years old, but some of its sections may have been written earlier.[1]


Mozart wrote the symphony in three movements and is scored for two oboes, two horns, and strings.
