Program Notes

Joseph Haydn’s music is beloved worldwide as the very best of the classical era. Of his “London” symphonies, the Symphony No. 104 is perhaps the most famous, and the delightful Menuetto movement is now available for flexible instrumentation bands.

- Program Note by publisher


The Symphony No. 104 in D major (H. 1/104) is Joseph Haydn's final symphony. It is the last of the twelve London symphonies, and is known (somewhat arbitrarily, given the existence of eleven others) as the "London Symphony. "

The work was composed in 1795 while Haydn was living in London, and premiered there at the King's Theatre on 4 May 1795, in a concert featuring exclusively Haydn's own compositions and directed by the composer. The premiere was a success; Haydn wrote in his diary, "The whole company was thoroughly pleased and so was I. I made 4000 gulden on this evening: such a thing is possible only in England."

The Menuetto (minuet), originally a social dance of French origin for two people, comprises the third movement of the symphony.
