Symphonies of a wide span by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johannes Brahms:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was only eight years old when he composed his first symphony. By the time he wrote Symphony No. 25 as a 17-year-old in 1773, he had already gained attention as a composer. This symphony is characterized by the zeitgeist of the 1770s when poets cultivated the individual, passion, and the dark sides of life. The first movement was used in the introduction of the film Amadeus.
Johannes Brahms was established as one of his time’s greatest composers when he wrote his Symphony No. 3 at the age of 50, in 1883. His musical life motto consisted of the note sequence F-A-F, for frei aber froh - “free, but happy.” The motto was a twist on that of a good friend, who was “free, but lonely.” Brahms had neither family nor a high-ranking position but rejoiced in life as a free artist.
