Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart completed his Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551, on 10 August 1788. The longest and last symphony that he composed, it is regarded by many critics as among the greatest symphonies in classical music. The work is nicknamed the Jupiter Symphony. This name stems not from Mozart but rather was likely coined by the impresario Johann Peter Salomon. The symphony is scored for flute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns in C, two trumpets in C, timpani in C and G, and strings.

40 & 41 "Jupiter". 40 in G minor, K. 550. 1. Molto allegro. Claudio Abbado, London Symphony Orchestra. 40 in G minor, KV. 550 was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1788. It is sometimes referred to as the "Great G minor symphony", to distinguish it from the "Little G minor symphony", No. 25. The two are the only extant minor key symphonies Mozart wrote. The date of completion of this symphony is known exactly, since Mozart in his mature years kept a full catalog of his completed works; he entered the 40th Symphony into it on 25 July 1788. 41 is known as the "Jupiter Symphony," though this is not Mozart's designation. The entire symphony is brilliant, and the last movement is a contrapuntal exercise, where at the conclusion five themes are combined fugally. One of the themes is a four note motif that Mozart used in several other compositions. Edlinger and the MFO's performance of this symphony is much more satisfactory, in my opinion
