MOZART Symphony no 33 K 319

The Symphony No. 33 in B flat major, K. 319, was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and dated on 9 July 1779. Composed in Salzburg and The minuet was added in 1782 in Vienna. Published as Op. 7 No. 2 in 1785. The work runs approximately 19 minutes in performance and is scored for 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, and orchestral strings. No. 33 contains many passages of almost chamber-like intimacy, in contrast to the grand, public manner of the Paris Symphony in particular. The absence of trumpets in the orchestra increased that quality. It was one of his few symphonies to appear in print during his lifetime. The Vienna firm Artaria published it in 1785.

Composition Year 1779, revised 1782 or 1785.
