Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante is in E-flat major but the viola part is written in D major. Today, violists have two possibilities to play it: either tuning all strings one semitone up in order to get closer to the violin’s bright sound, or transposing the score by keeping the natural tune in order to express the viola’s darker and thicker tones.

Beethoven composed his Symphony No. 7 during the Napoleonic wars with more classical style and less political content than in his previous works. Its constant dance aspiration was at the origin of its success when premiered, and its second movement now remains among the most famous pieces ever written.
