From the Royal Albert Hall , London
Part 1
In January 1787 Mozart paid a visit to Prague, where The Marriage of Figaro was being played with outstanding success. ' Here.' he wrote to a friend, 'they talk of nothing but Figaro; play, sing, and whistle nothing but Figaro; go to no opera but Figaro, eternally Figaro. On January 20 he conducted a performance of the opera; and the day before, at a concert in the opera house he directed for the first time a symphony he had written in Vienna the previous month. This work, in D, has since then always been known as the ' Prague ' Symphony. At the end the applause was so great that he had to appear again and again; he finally sat down at the piano and gave a brilliant improvisation on Figaro's aria ' Non piu andrai.'
The Symphony, one of his greatest, has only three movements. A slow introduction (which begins with a summons to attention not unlike that at the opening of the ' Jupiter ' Symphony) leads to an Allegro movement remarkable for its power and ingenuity. There is an enchanting Andante, smooth and graceful, though not without harmonic clashes. In the Presto finale the main theme, given to the strings, receives at once the assent of the woodwind family (a delicious effect); thereafter the music pursues a headlong course to its brisk and animated end.
