Symphony No 41 in C major 'Jupiter', K551
Mozart’s last symphony, Symphony No 41 in C major, K. 551, later dubbed ‘Jupiter’, probably because of its majestic opening movement or its ‘jovial’ and ‘titanic’ finale, seems to sum up Mozart’s whole symphonic production with its subtlety and grandeur. But amidst the fanfares of trumpets and drums of those outer movements, Mozart still has one new colour up his sleeve: the muted violins of the slow second movement. Mozart hardly ever used this colour in a symphony and yet the Master says ‘farewell’ to the symphonic form by means of a gorgeous veil over the sound, investing a special quality in it which even pervades the great C major climax in the second part of the movement. A truly original colour in this final symphony of endless tonal variety.

from notes by Sir Charles Mackerras 2007
