'''Symphony No. 88''' in G major (Hoboken 1/88) was written by Joseph Haydn. It is occasionally referred to as ''The Letter V'' referring to an older method of cataloguing Haydn's symphonic output.
The symphony was completed in 1787. It is one of Haydn's best-known works, even though it is not one of the Paris or London symphonies and does not have a descriptive nickname.
