K. 75 Symphony in F major "No. 42",

The Symphony in F major "No. 42", K. 75, was probably written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from March to August 1771 in Salzburg. The symphony is scored for two oboes, two horns and strings. In contemporary orchestras, it was also usual to include bassoons and harpsichord if they were available in the orchestra to reinforce the bass line and act as the continuo. The duration is approximately 13 minutes. Like other works from this time period, such as the K. 97 symphony, the autograph, which was in the possession of Breitkopf & Härtel, was destroyed during World War II. Mozart's authorship therefore remains uncertain. Most professionals consider the work authentic. The Alte Mozart-Ausgabe (published 1879–82) gives the numbering sequence 1–41 for the 41 numbered symphonies. The unnumbered symphonies (some, including K. 75, published in supplements to the Alte-Mozart Ausgabe until 1910) are sometimes given numbers in the range 42 to 56, even though they were written earlier than Mozart's Symphony No. 41 (written in 1788). The symphony K. 75 is given the number 42 in this numbering scheme. WIKIPEDIA
