Success was what Mozart had hoped for from his stay in Paris in 1778. Here, he wrote the symphony that we now classify as No. 31 for one of the legendary “concerts spirituels”. It was the culmination of his symphonic composition at the time and was written to please the musical expectations of the Parisian audience.
