Up 17. 2nd of Schubert's 7 entries.

Schubert began both a law degree and his Symphony No. 5 in the same year. In this instance at least, it was the degree rather than the music that would remain unfinished. At nineteen, this might well have been the piece that caused him to break off from his planned law degree. This symphony is a real product of its time it could almost be by Mozart, given its youthful exuberance.
