Nocturne for flute, oboe, horns, and strings
The title. Nocturne (Notturno), for this work is to be taken not in the essentially romantic sense as used by Chopin, but as a piece usually played at night, of a quiet, gentle character. In form, however, the classical nocturne differed little from the serenade, cassation, and early symphony. Haydn's Nocturne to be played this afternoon is the only one he wrote for this group of instruments, but he has written several for the hurdy-gurdy.
