Concert notes on folder: The second movement of the Military Symphony was perhaps the most celebrated composition of Haydn's performed during his second visit to London in 1794. The music, however, is not original with this symphony was was taken from an earlier work, "Concerto per la Lira Organizzata" composed in 1786 for the King of Naples. The wind band version was probably written after the London successes and follows very closely the orchestral symphony except for the deletion of the long coda. The autograph score, which is in a private collection in Stockholm, is written on English paper and without title. it is scored for 1 Flute, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, 2 Bassoons, 2 Horns, Carino, Serpent and Military Instruments. The Military Instruments (Percussion) are not notated except for the indication of "Tamburo" following the Clarino (Trumpet) fanfare. This edition follows the Percussion parts as they are played in the orchestra. The Serpent part is assigned to the Trombone and optional parts for the Tuba and a Contrabassoon have been added. Some scoring changes have been made, especially at phrase endings, which again conform to the writing as it appears in the orchestral score (mm. 16, 20, 41 and 52). For comparison, consult the G. Henle edition of the "Complete Works", vol. 17, p. 227.
