6 (‘Le matin’)That miraculous opening! 79. 49 (‘La Passione’)When a truly dark, complex work leaps out of a musical canon so often reliant on frolic and joy, it’s a big deal. The final movement is pretty impressive though - a rolling cast of soloists all have a pop at out-horning the horns, with entertaining results. It’s among the more interesting works of Haydn’s early-mid-period, and mostly because he seems to have committed to one character. This symphony is a bit like that. Symphony No. Symphony No. There’s potential in the first movement, pent-up energy, even, but Haydn just won’t open up in the same way he does in, say, 39 or 26. Symphony No. First of all, it is probably the only minuet in the key of F# major in the whole century. The Adagio in particular is a total smoothie, lithe and slippery in equal measure. 49. 104. Supreme stuff. If you look at the chord at the fermata you see it spells out D B E# G. What the heck is that? Finale: Presto, 2/2 - Adagio, 3/8 (F# minor and A major, then F# major) The second movement uses just the two horns in A and the third movement, in the outrageous key of F# major, uses two in F#. Symphony No. If you find a recording that foregrounds the continuo in that closing Presto, this is a right belter. . Symphony No. In any case, they would have to change back for the last movement, again requiring four horns, two in A and two in E. The first movement opens with a long, sixteen measure phrase that I will have to break up into three parts: I have been reading over your blog the past few months and I find it an absolute treasure, thank you Bryan for sharing your vast knowledge with us all! Symphony No. Symphony No. 45 (Haydn); 45. 45 (‘Farewell’)There’s a terrific story about the last movement (you know, it’s the one where the instruments stop one by one and the players walk out - it was made as a sort of 18th century musicians’ union statement), but you have to trudge through quite a lot of standard Haydn to get there. There are flashes of inspiration elsewhere, sort-of, but generally you assume that this was being composed alongside a lot of other, more important works. 73. Hurried, confused, atmospheric in the first movement, fairly standard in the middle two and truly belting in the last, it’s a strong contender. Long before the programmatic adieu, the Symphony makes innumerable vital points. Symphony No. 58After the righteous anger and heartfelt melancholy of the 40s, the 50s seems to be Haydn’s rather less exciting comedown. Later on this same passage recurs with an G# major chord and a diminished seventh on A#. The official reason is that some of the material was used for a play of the same name in 1775, but Haydn actually does sound pretty distracted here. I was given the ridiculous task of listening to all of Haydn's 104 symphonies and putting them in order of brilliance (or not-so-brilliance). Very good value. The … But I will say the the second movement of symphony number 5 is a gem. Symphony No. It’s no wonder that this one remains relatively popular among his output - it’s clever, sweet and fun. 24Woodwind to the fore here, but Haydn hadn’t really worked out quite what to do with them all at this point in his career. Here, he turns his attention to the bassoon, and gives it a merry old tune to parp, which makes for a very enjoyable opening. 3Uh-oh, time for an innovation! 78. 91There’s some reworked material from Handel’s Ariadne of Naxos buried in here, which perhaps explains why it feels more like accompaniment without melody to begin with. It’s taken an extremely long time and it almost sent our writer mad, but we’ve created one of the most important documents in classical music. In line with the historical context of the work, your CSO musicians will snuff out their candles and leaving the stage at the close of Haydn's Symphony No. 5After a subdued opening and some neat, wincingly high horn entries, this one sort-of fails to go anywhere. The first movement, allegro, is ceremonial and dazzling in its trumpet flourishes. 41A grind. The development proper, after the double bar, feints at E minor and C# minor and does a lot of working out of a new motif from the theme, the little C# to D bit, also in inversion: The recapitulation is an exact repeat of that original theme which is then followed by some more development. 41. 64 (’Tempora mutantur’)The literal translation of the full tempo marking at the beginning of no. 78, a decade later) and the key scheme of the movements correspondingly striking: F# minor, A major, F# major F# minor moving at the end to major. Forget the rest of the symphony - splendid as it is, it’s all about the first minute. There’s not a whiff of phone boxes or black cabs and it starts really quietly, so on a purely practical level it is an abject failure. 58 is pleasant enough, but there must’ve been a legion of music lovers at the time who were willing him to recapture the magic of his previous glories. Symphony No. Haydn — Symphony No. 45 in F ♯ minor, known as the "Farewell" Symphony (German: Abschieds-Symphonie; modern orthography: German: Abschiedssinfonie), is a symphony dated 1772 on the autograph score. The first two outline two chords. Symphony No. Surprise Symphony, byname of Symphony No. Symphony No. 88Go straight to the second movement. The "Farewell" symphony, no. Angular, interlocking lines of melody wind around each other most attractively and inventively in the first movement, while the third features an impish trick - deliberately leaving one poor musician a quaver behind the pack to make the whole thing sound bowlegged and clumsy. The material itself is fine, typical Haydn, but here’s evidence that he was thinking outside of the box.12. Symphony No. A typical performance of the symphony lasts around twenty-five minutes. 77. 88 in G major (Hoboken 1/88) was written by Joseph Haydn. In F# major this is bVI, a major chord on the flattened sixth degree. 47 (‘Palindrome’)Is this the ultimate Haydn joke? Not challenging technically, but to nail that lyricism is a rare and satisfying thing. After the double bar the 'development' begins by exactly restating that opening period, but this time in A major. 17If you were to listen to Haydn’s symphonies in chronological order, no. Or not. 30 (‘Alleluia’)So-called because of Haydn’s use of a Gregorian ‘alleluia’ motif in the first movement, No. 96.

Why won’t he let rip? . Best place to spot that in this symphony is the finale, La Tempesta, which depicts a thrilling thunderstorm and places Haydn in that lineage between Vivaldi and Beethoven. 88. There’s a dignity, a quietness, a latent darkness even - all of the appropriate funereal emotions, basically. Approved. No more conforming to tropes - it was time for a bit of innovation. Of all his compositions, the genre of symphonic continues to thrive to our modern age, such as Symphony No. There’s like a billion of them.

Try to remember any of the melodies and you’ll be staring into the void. 45, “Farewell” His given name was Franz Joseph; but to generations of classical music devotees, he is known as Papa. Haydn's Allegretto tempo keeps the movement in the realm of the minuet as opposed to the quicker scherzo. 99A symphony of amazing moments, rather than a complete thematic success. 11. 16There’s an impressive cello ‘moment’ here in the middle movement that earmarks the instrument as one of Haydn’s favourites. ", Your blog is invaluable not just as a remarkable archive on musical subjects, but as a place where one can find genuinely interesting opinions on music, both from you and commenters.

What Haydn achieved was to establish the four-movement symphonic form that adopts the following pattern of tempi: fast, slow, medium, fast. Haydn’s fourth movement of this symphony is formulated as a Sonata-Rondo movement. The second movement, adagio, is contrasting, beautifully restrained, and quietly powerful with a large royal flourish at the end. Unless you look a bit more closely at the chronology of what was composed when, in which case that argument falls apart. A trifle long at over 20 minutes, but there are probably just about enough ideas flying around to keep the interest. Still worthy of inclusion in his late-period run of symphonic excellence, just about. 62Allow it to wash over you and you’ll be fine. Symphony No. It’s all in F minor, it’s all morose, it’s all deep, it’s all sweetly shot through with meek sunshine. Once it gets going, though, it’s pretty good. (UPDATE: I forgot to mention that the motif changes to a tremolando version for the last four measures.) Symphony No. 56One of Haydn’s longest at over half an hour, but does he manage to fill it with enough decent tunes? Here is how they look: The first kind is created by the grace notes at the very beginning. 21You get the impression here that Haydn felt he’d got the whole symphony thing sewn up. There are three statements of a four measure motif. The craft of the build-up, the cheeky unexpected cadences, the silence between the notes… lovely. This final section is in F# major: Now let's listen to Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music with the whole symphony: I am so thankful for obsessive thinkers and writers like yourself who give us something interesting and intellectually nourishing to chew on almost every day. 10. 35In No. 67. 28. 27Chronologically, this one was written much earlier than you’d think, given it’s numerical placing within Haydn’s canon. 52, 53 and 59 - Royal Northern, The head of Austrian composer Joseph Haydn mysteriously, Download 'Slovak Suite - At Church' on iTunes. Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. It’s filled with surprising, new sounds- most notably the “Turkish” exoticism of the triangle, crash cymbals, and bass drum. Audiences at the time might have expected to hear these special effects in the opera house, but not in a symphony. 10pm - 1am, Slovak Suite - At Church Symphony No. Enjoyable fireworks, for sure, but it’s showstopper rather than a heartstopper. 38. 95. Symphony No. Symphony No. Congratulations for running a comments section full of enlightening aesthetic debates. 59. Trouble is, by this point, around 1763, Haydn was pretty much constantly knocking out symphonies with his eyes closed, which means a large chunk of that early output is pretty forgettable. 9A bit of an autopilot symphony. 78 as the final of three symphonies designed for London audiences, along with 76 and 77. 81Haydn is on dynamic and kinetic form here, giving conventional tonality a bit of a slap in the gills with his tricksy little stop-starts and key subversions. Stately, boring, fusty, disappointing. Symphony No. 43. This is probably due to a charming bit of "stage business" that ends the work. 32. 43 (‘Mercury’)No obvious reason for the subtitle. Symphony No. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s one of the most inconspicuous. The first symphony on this CD is one of Haydn's best known works and the only one of Haydn's early symphonies to retain a continued place in the repertory from Haydn's life until the present. It’s another of his stylistic tics, little amusements that he incorporated no-doubt to entertain himself as much as the audience. At this relatively early stage in his career, Haydn clearly knows what he’s doing and is still smashing out melodies like there’s no tomorrow, his symphonies are becoming interchangeable. 94 in G Major, orchestral work by Austrian composer Joseph Haydn, so named for the “surprise”—a startlingly loud chord—that interrupts the otherwise soft and gentle flow of the second movement. The second movement is, however, an absolutely transparent whopper. And a gesture as simple as that opening has huge consequences for the rest of the symphony - somehow, it makes it more reverential, more considered, more serious. 63You know when Judi Dench turned up at the end of Shakespeare In Love for about 2 minutes and still managed to win an Oscar, despite doing very little apart from wearing some intimidating make-up? 75Like having a conversation with a parent, then realising halfway through that you already had that conversation earlier in the week, and when you had it the first time you had a cup of tea and a biscuit, so it was slightly superior. More stellar nickname work, everyone. No-one's here for accuracy. 55 (‘The Schoolmaster’)Supposedly the nickname of this symphony comes from the second movement, which sounds like a schoolmaster wagging his finger and falling in love. 36Not a classic. Symphony No. Well, he picked wisely. Symphony No. Hard to tell. The stay there had been longer than expected, and most of the musicians had been forced to leave their wives back at home in, , so in the last movement of the symphony, Haydn subtly hinted to his patron that perhaps he might like to allow the musicians to return home: during the final, each musician stops playing, snuffs out the candle on his music stand, and leaves in turn, so that at the end, there are just two. 80Along with 79 and 81, a loose trilogy is formed with this symphony, which seems to revel in a bit more musical freedom than Haydn was used to. Symphony No. Symphony No. A ticking clock in the strings, questions asked and answered between sections, that kind of thing. There’s even some musical dragging here, as Haydn hobbles the minuet with incessant dotted rhythms.75. Well, thankfully, no. 44 (‘Trauer’)The subtitle translates as ‘Mourning’, so Haydn obviously asked for the second movement to be played at his funeral. It is a tad sluggish though, you might even call it dramatic and *whispers reverently* romantic. Symphony No. 49 in F minor, La passione (1768) Symphony No. THE MUSIC SALON: classical music, popular culture, philosophy and anything else that catches my fancy... "Your opinion of Thile's Bach is . Symphony No. Nah, not really. Symphony No. The second movement of this symphony is one of Haydn’s more obvious jokes, in which the audience is lulled into a false sense of security and then suddenly shocked by a loud chord. 28Aggressively good stuff all the way through. But at the heart of it, there’s a beautiful melancholy - one of Haydn’s most overlooked emotional qualities.7. 86Strident, daring and ultimately triumphant, like sneaking in under the barrier in a multi-story car park when the car in front has already gone through. With the opening of no. Symphony No. It’s not a genre-buster, but it has a wonderful feel. Impressive, but we’re not sure why. Literally no-one would notice. Symphony No. This is all repeated and then that little turn in eighth notes is developed, mostly in inversion. 17 to 19, also in the violins. Schubert, among others, became famous for his use of this harmony for special Romantic effects. 36. 96 (‘The Miracle’)So basically this is another nicknamed symphony where the nickname has literally no bearing on the symphony. We never actually get a C chord. 30 is a sign that the composer was beginning to rely more heavily on external influence, not just merely trying to bodge tunes together as best he could. The magic of the second movement’s tick-tocking has become legendary and ensured no. The first movement is urgent and agitated. 60. 51Another tricky one for the horns. 61Like a bracing country walk with your father-in-law who you’re trying to impress but you’re aware is a licensed shotgun owner.31. 87Weirdly, after being guilty of phoning it in for quite a lot of these symphonies, the latter stages of Haydn’s career saw some of the most energetic works emerge. 100. Was it an 18th century superyacht or a dinghy? An early sign in Haydn’s career that he knew how to craft tension, to elicit wonder and ecstasy, all with a gentle crescendo. 59 (‘Fire’)Huge, huge fun. 11From the outset, it’s clear that Haydn was in a thinking kind of mood when jotting down this symphony. It was one of the works that helped Haydn's 4-movement symphony become the standard that would define orchestral music for generations. Symphony No. The adagio has some pretty interesting harmonies. 102See Symphony No. Well, in no. Symphony No. 18. Aptly subtitled, the ‘Lamentatione’ is as you’d expect - a delightfully melancholy slow movement and an angular, skipping, dramatic finale. The opening phrase of the finale is as perfect an eight-measure period as one could ask for: Four measures ending with a half-cadence answered by four measures ending with a full cadence and nicely balanced in register (the phrase actually ends with an F# on the first beat of the next line). Symphony No. It was a nickname that came into favor during Franz Joseph Haydn’s lifetime in the late 1700s, in the long period when he served as Kapellmeister for the Hungarian Court of Eszterházy. 25Haydn was clearly sick of writing slow movements, because he just plain doesn’t include one here (except for a customary portentous introduction). Pause. You can pretty much march around the room in a wig to this one for the duration. Symphony No. 100 (‘Military’)If you played the ‘Military’ as you were going into battle, you’d be more likely to ponder the true meaning of combat, the myriad social and emotional implications for those who partake, the poetry you might write as a result. Still, it was only his first (numbered) stab at a symphony, so we’ll forgive. 85 (‘La Reine’)Not a pizza. Imagine being hounded by an ex-lover who still has your bank details and has been completely inaccurate when dividing your possessions. The rest is sort-of fun, but you know, not mega. 60 (‘Il distratto’)The nickname for this one basically means ‘The Distracted’, and it’s pretty clear why. 1 Performances. 33. Here Haydn just tosses it off as a little joke. Before you know it, the movement is over. Except it’s not surprising because literally everyone knows it’s coming. Nice melodies, the odd rhythmic tweak or structural innovation, but nothing more. Nice enough tunes, but using mutes on the second violins when they answer the unmuted firsts is a bit of a cheap gag, even for Haydn. Thus, this main theme, often called the rondo theme or reprise, starts the first big “A” section. "I've been reading your blog for nearly a year now, and as a college student new to the world of classical music I have to say it's been incredibly informative. It’s good actually. 34There’s a sense of melancholy here, something that was to seep into Haydn’s middle period with more intensity, but in No. These stories about the raids on Gibson guitar factories are just weird. 10Once again showing Haydn’s penchant for brevity when necessary, this 15 minuter still only comes to life in the finale. Symphony No. Very satisfying. Symphony No. This is a period of high quality in general, but there is little that stands out except the ones I've mentioned in my opinion. 29. 53 (‘L’imepriale’)Puff out your chest and revel in Haydn’s most overtly stately symphony. Again, and perhaps all too late in his career, it shows Haydn to be a suddenly serious fellow - something that Mozart and, in turn, Beethoven undoubtedly seized upon. Symphony No. But, surprisingly, it’s no primitive beast. A certain lively spirit did prevail and it was good to hear a Haydn symphony close a concert for a change. 23More auto-pilot. It’s evidence that Haydn’s love of a good compositional game was established early and, if he didn’t get too bogged down, then it really works for the listener too.34. 9, third movement. 47. 76. 103. The third movement, the minuet and trio, takes its initial melody and then plays it in reverse, which gives the symphony its name. 76, though, there’s something deliciously unexpected about the melodies - lines go up where you expect them to go down, arpeggios rattle quite illogically at times, and soon you’re unsure whether to follow the bassoon or the strings. Symphony No. How? 69. Perhaps, with his advancing years and with dozens of symphonies under his belt, he was finally comfortable with his work? 45 in F ♯ minor, Farewell (1772) Symphony No. 103 (‘Drumroll’)It only took 103 symphonies for Haydn to work out that there’s more than two ways to open a first movement. Sadly, this is the latter. 89Another good one for the wind section, as Haydn grappled with an increased ensemble size. The symphony is full of pomp and glitter. 8 (‘Le soir’)We can see the delicate but increasing influence of the classical period trickling into Haydn’s symphonies by this point, as he leaves Baroque structures behind. 17 would be about the point where you’d consider giving up. Look, ENOUGH HORNS. And, because it’s Haydn, there are a whole bunch of tricks and quirks embedded deep into the piece, from surprise entries to abrupt and remote key changes. The third movement, Adagio molto e cantabile , was always the one I found the most difficult to understand. Symphony No. In his time he was able to experience the dawn of Romanticism and helped shape the classical era through his works. Symphony No. Previously, though he’d written competent and occasionally quite exciting things for his wind sections, here he uses the whole like an instrument itself, making this a superbly thick-sounding and textured experience. A trifle long at over 20 minutes, but … So I have decided to update i... UPDATE: As this post is getting a lot of attention, I have gone through and updated all the clips as my original choices all disappeared. But more than that, he’s challenging the horn players - their parts in the third movement would be a nightmare for any professional. 46, that opening optimism is quite quickly dissipated, making this Sturm und Drang masterpiece one of the symphonist’s finest achievements. Extra marks for death-avoiding dramatic premiere. 71. It’s balanced by some of the earliest meaningful woodwind parts in a Haydn symphony (hello tinkly flute lines), and the composer’s usual flourishes, but the sheer impact of those first few minutes are what it’s all about. Let’s put it mid-table. 32Early-mid-period filler. Movements. 74You could accuse Haydn of being the king of plod, needlessly dragging things out for far longer than necessary by repeating them or marking them at slow tempos. Fairly passable. Symphony No. Not top-flight Haydn, but severely enhanced by its unabashed brevity.54. No 45 is one of the best-known of Haydn’s Eszterháza symphonies, largely because of the famous circumstances of its composition. But is the symphony actually any good? Symphony No. It is likely that the symphony was nicknamed ‘The Clock’ because of the continuous quavers in the second movement. 50After a run of some really strong symphonies throughout the ‘40s, no. It’s difficult to establish any kind of momentum, but there are chunks of the final movement that elevate the whole work higher than a complete throwaway. So, for 21, he sets himself some rather nifty structural challenges, eschewing a traditional fast section in the opening movement and setting up the second movement as a colossal mirrored layout. 2Here’s the key thing with no. 19. Perhaps the most fun to be had with this one is to count the five-note semiquaver runs in the second movement. ... UPDATE: This post has been particularly hit with a bad case of link-rot, so I am replacing all the original musical clips with new ones. Fortunately, the music is cracking, full of verve and gumption. The distinctive feature did not appear in the original score. 56. 3. 45 in F-sharp minor, … 67There’s a nervous energy to no, 67, almost a rediscovery of a past vigour. Despite these annoyances, there’s some proto-Mozart string work going on here, especially in the first movement. 30. 57Another 30 minute+ symphony, but this time, it doesn’t seem like the ideas are stretched to breaking point. Less than 10 minutes, no repeats, some pleasant themes and a small spotlight for the violas. Symphony No. 45, "Farewell" (Jan. 19 & 20, 2018 at Knight Theater). Symphony No. Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 48 in C major, Maria Theresia (1768/1769) Symphony No. ", "Your "blog" is priceless to me and many others.". You can’t deny the emotional power of this symphony, and if you do, well, you’re just doing it wrong, aren’t you? Symphony No. 72Scale exercises for horn, then some garbled tooting. At the close of the trio is a violin solo with the direction, "Salomon solo ma piano," most likely a gesture of thanks to the impresario who was responsible for the most fulfilling musical and professional experience of the composer's life. Skip over. I've written several posts on Chopin, including two where I discuss the Ballade No. But once you’re over that minor etymological hurdle, there are some winsome, outdoorsy melodies to tramp through, none of which will tax the brain or the ears too much. 69, there was no more melancholy in Haydn’s music and he churned out sprightly little chuffers like this one. So while it’s entertaining to hear them fight it out with the strings for ‘most important section’, it’s a bit confusing. Symphony No. 40Numbered 40, but actually dates from the early teens. 77If you’re the sort of person who has a soundtrack in their head all the time, the minuet and trio of no. 51. 15Real talk: the opening to this symphony is deathly. 96. 39We’re well into the Sturm und Drang period now, and Haydn’s starting to sound edgy. Plenty of crunchy dissonance, quirky rhythmic ideas and spicy dynamics. 54As Haydn gradually worked his way around the orchestra, so his explorations into the properties of individual instruments became stronger. A little by-the-numbers, perhaps, but the numbers are quite good. Overall the symphony is a melancholy work. Well, it is a dominant seventh, actually: G B D F, as the E# is actually functioning as an F. Afterwards he keeps on with the E# and pulls us back to the key of B minor where that E# reverts back to an E natural. He only gives us half of that opening period before returning to working new developments of the motifs. The new theme is in D major: After repeating this theme a couple of times, interspersed with a bit of the motivic working of the first theme, Haydn moves right into a very compressed recapitulation. OK, stop sounding the horns. 55. Does anyone really know how good it is? 48 (‘Maria Therese’)The Holy Roman Empress Maria Therese was probably scared stiff by those opening horns. "You are a teacher, a stimulating conversant, and an intellectual I find engaging because yours is not a formulaic or ideological approach, but rather combining contemplation with an unfinished and authentic quest for truth, and that in the human experiential rather than religious dogmatic sense. 92. UPDATE: This post is now over four years old, but it has risen to be the most popular post on The Music Salon. Symphony No. This is the reverse of a dotted rhythm and is often described as a hiccup. 22. Like Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 42. 6. Symphony No. Heavy. 38 (‘Echo’)Basically a gimmick. 97Super-chromatic from the outset, it’s as if old man Haydn is drunkenly scrawling across the manuscript, a smouldering fag-end perched on a shelf, dangerously close to his glass of Riesling.
