Symphony No. 32 (Haydn) by Joseph Haydn


'''Symphony No. 32''' in C major (Hoboken I/32) is a festive symphony by Joseph Haydn.Antony Hodgson, ''The Music of Joseph Haydn: The Symphonies''. London: The Tantivy Press (1976): 58. "Symphony No. 32 is remarkable for its sound. ... above all this is a Festive Symphony and the attack of the high brass with its percussive underpinning could only have been created by Haydn." The exact date of composition is unknown. It has been suggested by noted Haydn scholar H.C. Robbins Landon that it could have been written as early as 1757 and as late as 1763.H. C. Robbins Landon, ''The Symphonies of Joseph Haydn''. London: Universal Edition & Rockliff (1955): 663. Landon casts a wider net, suggesting it could have been written as early as 1757 or as late as 1763. More recent scholars have suggested it was composed in either 1760 or 1761Brown, A.
