The Symphony No. 36 in C major, K. 425, (known as the Linz Symphony) was written by Mozart during a stopover in the Austrian town of Linz on his and his wife's way back home to Vienna from Salzburg in late 1783. The entire symphony was written in four days to accommodate the local count's announcement, upon hearing of the Mozarts' arrival in Linz, of a concert. The première took place on 4 November 1783.
The Symphony No. 31 in D major, K. 297, better known as the Paris Symphony, is one of the best known of Mozart's symphonies. The work was composed in 1778 during Mozart's unsuccessful job-hunting sojourn in Paris; the composer was then 22 years old. The premiere took place on 12 June 1778 in a private performance in the home of Count Karl Heinrich Joseph von Sickingen, the ambassador of the Electorate of the Palatinate. The public premiere took place six days later in a performance at the Concert Spirituel. The symphony is laid out in fast-slow-fast form, omitting the Minuet normally found in classical-era symphonies:
Symphony No.36 in C major, K.425
1. Adagio - Allegro spiritoso
Symphony No.31 in D major, K.297
