Second in the Mozart series, this work is totally symphonic, a perfect center piece for all-Mozart concerts and festivals. The opening movement is a virtual template for what is now known as sonata-allegro form. The stately minuet moves seamlessly from major to minor and the slow movement contains a series of eloquent bel-canto woodwind solos. The magnificent finale is pure Mozartian genius. Myers' orchestration amplifies all the nuances of the original by his skillful use of dynamics and tone colours.
