Symphony No. 97 in C played by BBC Northern Orchestra
Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan
Haydn wrote twelve symphonies in all for Salomon, the impresario who brought him to London-six on the first visit in 1791 and six on the second in 1794. They are acknowledged to be the finest of all Haydn's hundred odd symphonies, and it is pleasant to reflect that London's hospitality was the occasion, if not, of course, actually the cause of Haydn's surpassing himself.
It is fairly certain that no part of the symphonies could have been written elsewhere than in England. Between the making of the contract and his arrival in London there would have been no time, so that Haydn must have been busy between his arrival on January 1 and the first concert on March 11.
This particular symphony is as near perfection as anything ever composed.
