Program Notes

The Symphony No. 100 in G major, Hoboken I/100, is the eighth of the twelve London Symphonies written by Joseph Haydn and completed in 1793 or 1794. It is popularly known as the Military Symphony.

The nickname "Military" derives from the second movement, which features prominent fanfares written for C-trumpets and percussion effects. One reviewer wrote after the premiere that the second movement evoked the "hellish roar of war increas[ing] to a climax of horrid sublimity!"
