Apart from his later symphonies - 35, 36, 38, and the final three, 39, 40, and 41, Mozart never really prioritised the symphony as a form into which he poured his more profound thoughts.

Apart from these six symphonies, none of the earlier works could really be said to approach, never mind surpass the symphonies of Haydn.

Mozart’s earlier symphonies whilst never less than engaging, beautifully composed, and invariably attractive, are in truth rarely programmed in concerts apart from 25 (a formulaic, one-off attempt at a ‘sturm und drang’ style symphony), 28, 29, 31 (an over-rated, noisy bag of tricks and special effects), and 33, which do occasionally appear.

The symphony became more important to Mozart in the 1780’s once he got to Vienna, and had met Haydn; from that point, particularly with the last symphonies, Mozart indubitably wrote six of the greatest Classical symphonies of all.

But from being a 15 year old - definitely not!

Sí, toda la música de J. Haydn es una variedad de delicias para los sentidos !!!

Haydn's minuettos are like chocolate bonbons, the trios the creamy filling.


The trios always have some kind of delightful surprise in them. In the quartets, too.

Jean-Michel Prillieux

Miam miam !

Jonathan Brandt

the trios are the best

This is superlative Haydn. IMO, it could not be surpassed. What I really love is the incredible enthusiasm of the orchestra. For some reason, most orchestras seem to love playing Haydn. That is definitely the case here.

Ben Lindsay

The composer Friedrich Witt was so enthralled by Haydn's 97th symphony that he "borrowed" the first and last movements to include them into his own symphony!


Thank you for posting all of these. It really made my day finding your channel!
