5.0 classic
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart "Jupiter" Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551
In just few months time in 1788. Mozart composed his last three fantastic symphonies besides some more chamber music. The last in C major nicknamed "Jupiter" is most cheerful of them, but it's impossible to say that it's the best. All three are exquisite, one more beautiful then the other.rThis particular symphony is famous for it's quadruple counterpoint in the last movement which is mind blowing, but all movements are exceptional in their own right. I would recommend performances conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, who's interpretations of Mozart's menuet movements are right on the spot, I think, at least I never heard better ones.

4.5 superb
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Requiem in D minor, K. 626
According to Mozart's biographer Alfred Einstein Requiem in d - minor is originally very fragmented peace which is obvious if you know Mozart's work. Introitus and Kyrie are Mozart's, for Dies Irae Mozart wrote bass, timpani and vocals. Tuba Mirum's only first one or two bars are Mozart's. Then we come to section again completed by Mozart: Rex Tremendae, Recordare and Confutatis after which there is very popular Lacrimosa, but Lacrimosa's only first 8 bars are Mozart's right to the end of first crescendo! It seems that this is last music that he finished, that moving moment.
After that it's very possible that Mozart left very extensive sketches for Domine Jesu and Hostias, and that's all! The piece which lasts almost an hour can be attributed solely to Mozart only in length of 25 minutes!! If you cut all other music which was composed by some other composer so Mozart widow could sell the piece after his death you can really enjoy this work very much.
