Mozart set down his Symphony No. 1 in E-flat major when just eight years old. The work was probably written in the London district of Chelsea because that is where the Mozart family were giving concerts at the time. One can pick out influences of several composers, including Leopold Mozart and the sons of Johann Sebastian Bach, primarily Johann Christian Bach. The three-movement form is completely standard for Mozart’s early symphonies (the composer switched to the four-movement form only later). Roland Szentpáli’s trumpet concerto was commissioned by MR Symphonics in 2008 to commemorate the 40th birthday of trumpet player Gábor Tarkövi. Starting out from a fascination with the language of jazz, the composer’s basic concept was to create a work that in its form and instrumentalization would be traditional while employing jazz tools in its musical language and occasional harmonization. Shostakovich composed his Symphony No. 1 in F minor in 1925, at the age of 19, as his diploma work on completing the St. Petersburg Conservatory. The symphony comprises four movements although the last two follow on from one another without pause.
