The Symphony No. 36 in C major,(known as the Linz Symphony) was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart during a stopover in the Austrian town of Linz
He and his wife were on the 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 in Linz took place on this day in 1783. The composition was also premièred in Vienna on 1 April 1784.
