Symphony No. 39 (Haydn) by Joseph Haydn


'''Symphony No. 39''' is a symphony in G minor (Hoboken 1/39) by Joseph Haydn in 1765. It is the earliest of Haydn's minor key symphonies associated with his ''Sturm und Drang'' period works (such as the ''Symphony No. 45''). The work was influential and inspired later G minor symphonies by Johann Christian Bach (Op. 6, No. 6) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (No. 25).HC Robbins Landon, Haydn: Chronicle and Works, 5 vols, (Bloomington and London: Indiana University Press, 1976-) v. 2, Haydn at Eszterhaza, 1766-1790
