K 16 Symphony No. 1 in E flat major

The Symphony No. 1 in E flat major, K. 16, was written in 1764 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart at the age of eight years. By this time, he was already notable in Europe as a wunderkind performer, but had composed little music. The piece was written during the Mozart family's Grand Tour of Europe and during the period they were in London. At one point they had to move to Chelsea during the summer of 1764 due to Mozart's father Leopold's throat infection. The house at 180 Ebury Street, now in the borough of Westminster, where this symphony was written, is marked with a plaque. The symphony was first performed on 21 February 1765. The work shows the influence of several composers, including his father and the sons of J S Bach. Johann Christian Bach, whom Mozart had met at time in London .
