Symphony A by Joseph Haydn


'''Symphony 'A' in B-flat major''', Hoboken I/107, was written between 1757 and 1760. It is not in the usual numbering scheme for Haydn symphonies because it was originally thought to be a string quartet (Op. 1/5) and was catalogued as Hob. III/5.Hodgson, Antony, "The Music of Joseph Haydn: The Symphonies", p. 48[ French website for Hoboken III]

It is scored for 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns in B-flat alto, strings and continuo.HC Robbins Landon, Haydn: Chronicle and Works, 5 vols, (Bloomington and London: Indiana University Press, 1976-) v. 1, Haydn: the Early Years, 1732-1765
