Symphony no. 44 in Em 'Mourning', Hob. I:44

Haydn completed his Symphony in E minor, Hob. 1/44 in 1772. The piece is popularly known as Mourning and, apparently, Haydn asked for the slow movement of this symphony to be played at his funeral. A work of his Sturm und Drang period, it defies a number of traditions by placing the minuet in second place, and finishing in the minot tonic rather than in major, as usual at the time.
