Symphony No. 6 in E Flat Major, Opus 7 (Carl Friedrich Abel)

This symphony composed by Carl Friedrich Abel was originally thought to be composed by a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart when he had visited London and was given the title “Symphony No. 3 in E flat, K.18”.  It was later discovered that it was, in fact, only copied by Mozart for him to study and was the final piece in Abel’s “Six Symphonies, Op. 7”.

This  has three movements:

  • (i) Allegro
  • (ii) Andante
  • (iii) Presto
