This guide to Mozart's last and most celebrated symphony explores
the historical background and aesthetic context of the work as well
as the music itself. The early chapters examine the expectations of
the symphony in Mozart's Vienna, Mozart's career in 1788 - the year
of the three last symphonies - and the changing reception of the
'Jupiter' over the subsequent two hundred years. A separate chapter
is then devoted to each movement of the symphony with musical
discussion illuminated by a broad array of topics. Finally, a lucid
exposition of rhetoric reveals the connections between elevated and
learned styles and the sublime, enabling the reader to grasp the
effect Mozart's music had upon his contemporaries.
