Symphony No. 19 in E flat major, K. 132, was a symphony composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in July, 1772.[1]


The symphony has the scoring of two oboes, four horns (two of them uniquely written in "E flat alto"), and strings. There are four movements:

  1. Allegro, 4/4
  2. Andante, 3/8
  3. Menuetto: Trio, 3/4
  4. Allegro, 2/2

The first movement opens with a motif that Mozart would later use at the beginning of his twenty-second piano concerto in the same key.[2] The exposition is brief and there is no repeat. The development focuses on new material.[2]

There is also an alternative slow movement, marked Andantino grazioso.[1] The tempo marks in the first, second and fourth movements were written in the hand of Leopold Mozart.[1]

The finale is a French rondo in seven part (ABACADA) form. Each part of the rondo is repeated except for the final A.[2]
