Symphony No 19 in D major

Allegro molto  [5'25]
Andante  [3'11]
Presto  [2'48]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
No 19’s pattern of movements is more characteristic of Haydn’s early symphonies. There are just three: a motivically taut Allegro is followed by a minor-key Andante (for strings alone—a practice that probably derives from the desire to give the hard-working wind players a rest) and a vigorous finale.
