It is easy to see why the young Mozart was so impressed with the Symphony Op 7, No 6. It is written in the key of E flat major, a key in which Mozart was to set some of his warmest and noblest compositions, and the harmonic richness and textural variety are particularly advanced for the period. The writing for oboes and bassoon in all three movements is especially vivid and soloistic, and the sombre middle movement, in C minor, also anticipates some of Mozart’s own E flat major masterpieces such as the ‘Jeunehomme’ Piano Concerto, K271 and the Sinfonia Concertante, K364.
