MICHAEL HAYDN
SYMPHONY IN C

1. Allegro 2. Andante 3. Menuetto 4. Allegro presto
From early 1761, it begins with signal-chords reminiscent of opera
overtures and continues to form a sonata movt of relatively
extensive form. The following andante is in song-form and written
in chamber music style, almost like a fully orchestrated string
quartet. A brief minuet and lively rondo follow.

Savaria Baroque Orchestra
Pál Németh, conductor
[Hungaroton HCD 32202)




MICHAEL HAYDN
SYMPHONY No. 34

1. Allegro con brio 2. Adagietto 3. Finale – Fugato. Allegro
Written during the early months of 1788. After a lively opening
Allegro using folk tunes, the bassoon is featured in the brief slow movt & a rather
loose-limbed fugue in the finale.




MICHAEL HAYDN
SYMPHONY No. 35 in G (Perger 27)

1. Allegro spiritoso 2. Andante 3. Finale. Presto.
Again folk music has a place in this symphony but I wanted
to play it because passages that sound much like brother
Franz Joseph’s music, particularly his Symphony No. 83
(“La Poule”).
