Cette sinfonia animée, pour deux hautbois et cordes, introduit le troisième acte de l’oratorio de Haendel, Salomon (1748), et annonce l’arrivée de l’hôte qu’attend impatiemment le roi Salomon. Dans une version antérieure en trois mouvements, ce morceau se termine par un bref adagio.

Diese lebhafte Sinfonia für zwei Oboen und Streichinstrumente eröffnet den dritten Akt von Händels Oratorium Salomo (1748) und kündigt die Ankunft des von König Salomo ungeduldig erwarteten Gastes an. In einer früheren Dreisatzversion des Stückes schließt es mit einem kurzen Adagio.
