This session will be a bit of a "horn fest" as we discover Haydn experimenting with the use of 4 horns in the orchestra.

The symphonies we will be looking at which were written between 1763 and 1767 include 2 famous named symphonies and are numbers 13, 30 (Alleluia), 31 (Hornsignal), 39 and 72. 4 of these use 4 horns.

Other unusual features of this batch of symphonies are the use of a flute in 4 of the symphonies, and timps in 2 of the symphonies.

3 of the symphonies (13, 31 & 72) also have concertante parts in some movements featuring solo violin, solo cello, solo double bass, solo flute and solo bassoon.

The last movement of symphonies 31 & 72 is a theme and variations.
Previous sessions have been predominantly strings, horns (2) and oboes. This time we need additional horns, flutes, bassoons and timps.

Parts for 13, 30, 31 & 72 (which include all of the concertante parts) are available on IMSLP.


We do need players (volunteers preferably) for the concertante parts. Please let me know if you would like to have a go as soon as possible. I can then make sure that you have managed to access the parts before we meet.

This should be a great session with an enlarged orchestra and I look forward to seeing players for the additional parts and volunteers for the concertante parts.
