200 Years, Anniversary Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

haydnmania: the 2009 anniversary

whow, that’s not just for listening …

Joseph Haydn: “Symphony in B-Major, Nr. 16”, Hob. 1:16
composed in the years 1760 to 1763, at a time when he tried a lot of new techniques  – and, at this time not usual  instrumentation.
(it was also the time 1760, when he married a wife who didn’t make him happy during their lifetime – so maybe, music was some kind of escaping too …?!)

What I personally like most is the solocello in the second movement, the “Adagio”. Listen to it, you’ll not regret!

the complete symphony:

1. movement: “Allegro” (get a premonition)

2. movement: “Andante Ma Non Troppo” (!!! my favorite)

3. movement: “Finale, Presto” (a kick to regain your momentum)
