Description:

Haydn’s “Paris Symphonies” (1785-1786) were something of a new departure: after all the years of work in Esterhaza with a comparatively small ensemble, Haydn was asked to write symphonies for Europe’s largest orchestras in Paris. He responded with works full of brilliant wit and superb play on orchestra coloring, making grand use of the wind sections.

Several of the set have catchy, memorable themes (thus the nicknames “Bear”, “Hen” and “La Reine”), but they also “live” on the contrast between the forte “tutti” passages and the piano of individual instrumental groups.
