Symphony B by Joseph Haydn


'''Symphony No. B in B-flat major''', Hoboken I/108, was written between 1757 and 1760. It does not fall into the usual numbering scheme of Haydn's symphonies because it had later been published without its wind parts as a "Partita".Hodgson, Antony, "The Music of Joseph Haydn: The Symphonies", p. 48

It is scored for 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns, strings and continuo.

#Allegro molto, 4/4

#Menuetto & Trio. Allegretto, 3/4

#Andante in G minor


The trio of the minuet contains a dialogue between solo viola and solo bassoon.Brown, A. Peter, ''The Symphonic Repertoire'' (Volume 2). Indiana University Press (ISBN 025333487X), pp. 58-61 (2002).
