Today’s Memory – Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 in D major

 

First performance of Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 in D major

4 May 1795


Joseph HaydnThe Symphony No. 104 in D major (H. 1/104) is Joseph Haydn’s final symphony. It is the last of the twelve so-called London Symphonies, and is known (somewhat arbitrarily, given the existence of eleven others) as the London Symphony. The work was composed in 1795 while Haydn was living in London, and premiered there at the King’s Theatre, in a concert featuring Haydn’s own compositions and directed by the composer. The premiere was a success; Haydn wrote in his diary „The whole company was thoroughly pleased and so was I. I made 4000 gulden on this evening: such a thing is possible only in England.”
