Symphony no. 88 in G, Hob. I:88

Haydn completed his Symphony in G major, Hob. I:88 in 1787. Occasionally reffered to as The letter V symphony, it is one of his best known works, and considered of his most cheerful tunes. The work is in standard four movement form and scored for flute, two oboes, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, timpani, continuo (harpsichord) and strings. A tuneful and inventive piece of music, it has become a concert and recording favorite.
