Johann Christian Bach is another Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.

If you like Mozart, you'll love J.C. Bach's Symphony for Double Orchestra. While that might not be entirely true, Mozart himself was a fan of J.C.'s music, thanks to its cheery tunes and graceful expressive manner. Not content with a single orchestra, three of J.C.'s finest symphonies are designed for double orchestra, with a smaller group of strings and flutes contrasting with the strings, oboes, bassoons and horns.
