Schubert's Symphony No. 5 is light and full of tunes, with a significantly smaller orchestra than some of his other symphonic works. The Fifth was written while Schubert was particularly absorbed in the works of Mozart, and this influence can clearly be heard in a work that speaks with a distinctly 18th-century voice.
