Symphony No. 34
When Mozart found himself working for an unappreciative and demeaning boss, the Archbishop of Salzburg, he decided to become a freelance composer/performer in the music-loving city of Vienna. Before he left Salzburg, he wrote one last symphony for the orchestra that had been his musical home and training ground. We’ll hear that sincere goodbye symphony on today’s Midday Mozart with Bethany Cagle at noon.
