IN 1784 when Haydn was in the service of a nobleman at Esterhazy, in Hungary, he was invited by a concert.givingsociety at Paris to compose some Symphonies for production there. He wrote six then. and later another set, to which the one we are to hear belongs.
A short, slow Introduction ushers in the First Movement, in that vein of combined delicacy and brilliance jn which Haydn was always so happy.
The Second Movement consists largely of the gentle treatment of a melody, first announced by Oboe and 'Cellos. The Orchestral colours here are rich and satisfying.
The Third Movement is, of course, the Minuet, with its contrasting ' Trio ' or middle section.
The Last Movement's First Main Theme has that flavour of peasant music that is never long absent from Haydn's work. As the Movement is a Rondo, we hear this Tune several times, with pleasant diversions in between its appearances.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
