Symphonie G Minor Hob. I:83

(La Poule) Orchestra Study Score
Preface: Ullrich Schneidler

Joseph Haydn's so-called Paris Symphonies were composed in 1785 and 1786 for the masonic lodge Société Olympique in Paris, which ran a large orchestra and organised regular concerts. These six works are notable for their artful motivic work and playful wit. Haydn here pays tribute both to the discerning taste of the Paris audience and to the excellent abilities of the musicians in the orchestra. These symphonies rapidly became famous and popular throughout Europe, thanks to editions published variously in Paris, Vienna and London. The Symphony no. 83 is the only Paris Symphony in a minor key. Its nickname La Poule (The hen) was not coinedby Haydn. But it's almost impossible not to be reminded of the bird when listening to the oboe's cluckings in the second theme of the first movement. This study edition reproduces the musical text of the Haydn Complete Edition, which is a guarantor of the finestscholarship. An informative preface and a brief critical report make this handy score an ideal companion for all Haydn fans, both present and future.
