The Symphony No. 25 in G minor, K. 183/173dB, was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in October 1773, shortly after the success of his opera seria Lucio Silla. It was supposedly completed October 5, a mere two days after the completion of his Symphony No. 24, although this remains unsubstantiated. It is widely known as the opening music in Miloš Forman's film Amadeus.
The symphony is laid out in standard classical form:
Style and Influence
With its wide-leap melodic lines and brisk musical subjects, this symphony is characteristic of the Sturm und Drang style. (By contrast, Mozart's only other minor key symphony, number 40 (also in G minor), is not typically viewed as part of this movement.) It shares certain features with other Sturm und Drang symphonies of this time, and is likely inspired from Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 39 which is likewise in G minor.
