Conductor, Gideon Fagan The key of G minor appears to have had a tragic significance for Mozart. At any rate the first movements of the G minor Piano Quartet, the G minor String Quartet, and this great symphony are all tragic in character. Yet, strange to say, the true nature of the symphony was long misunderstood.
Mozart's contemporaries made no mistake about it, but it is characteristic of the nineteenth century's complete lack of comprehension of pre-Beethovenian music that the G minor Symphony was commonly regarded as light and joyous. No less a critic than Schumann could speak of the symphony's ' light and Grecian grace '. Nowadays we understand Mozart a little better ; the fire, passion, and pathos of the work are unmistakable.
