One of his final works, Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 is a work that encapsulates the beauty and eloquence the composer is known for. Josef Haydn, who was a contemporary — and friend — of Mozart, helped shape the idea of a "symphony" from a mere collection of nice movements to a coherent musical statement. His Symphony No. 6 begins with the depiction of a gorgeous sunrise.
