This week we explore one of Mozart's greatest symphonies, the Prague. This symphony, written possibly as a gift for the city that adored him so much, is one of Mozart's most ambitious pieces, with a massive first movement that rivals Beethoven's Eroica in length. The piece is full of exactly what makes Mozart's music so inventive, heartbreaking, and beautiful. We'll talk all about Mozart's life in Prague, the games Mozart plays with his audience, and the allusions to Prague that make this piece such a gift.
