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 
  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.
