Symphony No.5 in Bb, D.485

Schubert wrote his Symphony no. 5 in B flat major, D. 485, in 1816. Finished just six months after his previous symphony, its writing heavily resembles that of Mozart's, as Schubert was infatuated with the deceased composer at the time. Indeed, this is reflected on the light instrumentation: the score calls for one fute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns in Bb, and strings. It is the only schubert symphony that does not include clarinets or timpani, taking after the first version of Mozart's Symphony no. 40.
