I verified it's now the 3rd result on 2nd results page (23rd result).
using &srbackend=LuceneSearch restores [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphony_No._36_%28Mozart%29|Symphony No. 36 (Mozart)]] to be the top result.

searching for "Mozart Symphony intitle:36" shows the desired article as first result. All of the top 6 (as far as I looked) of the bad results mention this symphony by name (with number) in the article text (and some in the result snippets too).
