Misc. Notes In the original, horns and trumpets in D, timpani written as transposing instrument. In regards to trumpet range, trumpets in B are just as practical as trumpets in C, but given the easier key signature in C, I opted for the C trumpet.

Misc. Comments

There is no indication whatsoever that Haydn intended an improvised slow middle movement to be inserted; the piece is intended as a 2-movement work.

RISM specifies string section instrumentation "vl 1, vl 2, vla, b" - violins, violas, basso (cellos/basses, presumably); do the manuscript parts include figured basso continuo? (Parts marked "basso" but unfigured are not the same thing. String quartets as late as the 1780s even had cello parts that were marked "basso" but which were not, I think, at that time expected to be figured, much less, as "continuo" actually tends to imply, be something that could be taken up, as was true in some places during some parts of the Baroque period, by harpsichord, organ, archlute, vihuela, or other bass instruments ad libitum! ...It's a language thing.)
