Here his advances in opera and instrumental composing interacted: his increasingly sophisticated use of the orchestra in the symphonies and concertos influenced his operatic orchestration, and his developing subtlety in using the orchestra to psychological effect in his operas was in turn reflected in his later non-operatic compositions. The situation became worse in 1775 when the court theater was closed, and the other theater in Salzburg was largely reserved for visiting troupes. There was little money; Leopold needed to wait until they were invited to attend court, and then wait to be paid, or reimbursed, from that court before being able to travel to another court.

Once this happened, though, Mozart was free to go wherever and do whatever he wanted, but his father sided against him in the tumult with the Archbishop, driving a wedge between the two. Upon their return, the new archbishop appointed young Mozart as assistant concertmaster with a small salary. It was a lot to endure, but the Mozarts persevered.

Maynard Solomon suggests that the simple funeral may have reflected Mozart's own wishes. While his compositions during this period are some of his most admired, they did not secure financial success. As the new century progressed, Beethoven composed piece after piece that marked him as a masterful composer reaching his musical maturity. The cause of death is uncertain, due to the limits of postmortem diagnosis. These concerts were financially successful.
