Supplemental orchestration

An orchestra today doesn't have to pass on this Symphony because flutes, clarinets, and trombones have to sit it out. These parts, all based on the parts Haydn himself wrote, give those musicians the opportunity to participate in this piece. The timpani part provided here is not the one Haydn wrote; the Vecsey edition even goes so far as to assert no such part exists. If this timpani part is felt to be too modern, it may be more appropriate to take a trumpet part and base the timpani part off that.

Misc. Comments

This is Michael Haydn's only Symphony in a minor key, and one of only three to be published in his lifetime. Both Sherman's catalog of Symphonies and his later catalog of all Michael Haydn's works lists a timpani part for this work.

About numbering

Here we are perpetuating a misnumbering. By Sherman's 1982 catalog, this is Symphony No. 29; this is the number used in the new CPO recording. The Sherman-Thomas catalog has no Symphony numbers but it does have MH numbers for all of Michael Haydn's compositions. There are ways to make this Symphony come out at No. 26, 27, 33 or 34. But the only way to make it come out at No. 30 is to accept the number on Farbermann's recording.
