As Arranger 8 Arrangements by: Modern scholarship suggests that these conjectures are not correct. There is strong circumstantial evidence for other, probably better, performances. These include: Most important is the fact that Mozart revised his symphony see above. As Zaslaw says, this "demonstrates that [the symphony] was performed, for Mozart would hardly have gone to the trouble of adding the clarinets and rewriting the flutes and oboes to accommodate them, had he not had a specific performance in view.
Zaslaw adds: Regarding the concerts for which the Symphony was originally intended when it was composed in , Otto Erich Deutsch suggests that Mozart was preparing to hold a series of three "Concerts in the Casino", in a new casino in the Spiegelgasse owned by Philipp Otto. Mozart even sent a pair of tickets for this series to his friend Michael Puchberg. But it seems impossible to determine whether the concert series was held, or was cancelled for lack of interest.
The symphony is scored in its revised version for flute , 2 oboes , 2 clarinets , 2 bassoons , 2 horns , and strings. The work is in four movements , in the usual arrangement for a classical-style symphony fast movement, slow movement, minuet , fast movement:. The first movement begins darkly, not with its first theme but with the accompaniment , played by the lower strings with divided violas. The technique of beginning a work with an accompaniment figure was later used by Mozart in his last piano concerto KV.
The first theme is as follows. The second movement is a lyrical work in 6 8 time. The contrapuntal opening bars of this movement appear thus in keyboard reduction:. The minuet begins with an angry, cross-accented hemiola rhythm and a pair of three-bar phrases , as shown in the following piano reduction:.
Various commentators [ who? The contrasting gentle trio section, in G major , alternates the playing of the string section with that of the winds.
Midway through the movement there is a chromatic progression in which sparse imitative textures are presented by the woodwinds bars 43—51 before the full orchestra returns. In the trio section of the movement, the four-note figure that will form the main theme of the last movement appears prominently bars 68—71 , but on the seventh degree of the scale rather than the first, and in a minor key rather than a major, giving it a very different character.
Finally, a remarkable characteristic of this symphony is the five-voice fugato representing the five major themes at the end of the fourth movement. But there are fugal sections throughout the movement either by developing one specific theme or by combining two or more themes together, as seen in the interplay between the woodwinds.
The main theme consists of four notes:. In an article about the Jupiter Symphony, Sir George Grove wrote that "it is for the finale that Mozart has reserved all the resources of his science, and all the power, which no one seems to have possessed to the same degree with himself, of concealing that science, and making it the vehicle for music as pleasing as it is learned.
Nowhere has he achieved more. It was very popular with Mozart. It makes a brief appearance as early as his Symphony No.
Sherman has pointed out other similarities between the two almost perfectly contemporaneous works. The name has also been attributed to Johann Baptist Cramer , an English music publisher. Some sources suggest ,  but public notices using the name have emerged going back to mid Salomon died in , so it may have circulated within informed musical circles for a considerable time before it became public.
As summarized below, the Symphony garnered approbation from critics, theorists, composers and biographers and came to be viewed as a canonized masterwork, known for its fugue and its overall structure which exuded clarity. The first known recording of the Jupiter Symphony is from , at the dawn of the recording era, making it one of the very first symphonies to be recorded using the earliest recording technology.
