Symphony No 19 in D major


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.

from notes by Matthew Rye © 1993

La séquence des mouvements de la No 19 est plus représentative des premières symphonies de Haydn. Ils sont au nombre de trois: un Allegro assez tendu sur le plan motivique, puis un Andante en mineur, pour cordes uniquement (une pratique sans doute dictée par la volonté de permettre à la section des instruments à vent, souvent mise à contribution, de se reposer), et un vigoureux finale.

Die Satzform der Nummer 19 ist dagegen typisch für Haydns frühe Sinfonien. Nur drei Sätze—einem motivisch straffen Allegro folgt ein Andante in Moll (nur für die Streicher—wahrscheinlich, um den schwer arbeitenden Bläsern eine Ruhepause zu gewähren) und ein kraftvolles Finale.
