    Another weekend is upon us and another Symphony is up for your listening enjoyment. This weekend it's a Symphony that was long attributed to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart but was in fact mostly written by composer Michael Haydn. Mozart wrote the Adagio Maestoso introduction. I have listened to this one many times over the years and I'm looking forward to hearing it again. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

    I'll be listening to this one on disc but here's a YouTube recording for anyone without one.

    I’ll be listening to the Bamert. On this release, the work is referred to as the “Symphony in G, P16”.

    Listened to the “Contemporaries of Mozart” performance by the London Mozart Players, Matthias Bamert conducting. This is the original without the introduction that Mozart added. It’s about 16 minutes long.

    The first movement opens with a stringing together of rather squarish and undistinguished phrases, not of much interest but sounding nice in the “classical” manner. After the expo repeat, there is little development to speak of, then the obligatory recap and a vestigial coda.

    The Andante, again, is nice sounding but there’s little to remember. The oboes are a nice touch in the last third of this ternary-form movement.

    The finale, a triple-time rondo, again does some stringing together, but there’s a bit of variety and some mild surprises, making this movement somewhat more interesting than the first.

    Joseph Haydn once said that his brother wrote better religious music than he himself did, but he made no such claim about Michael’s secular music. He likely thought that silence was the better policy. If so, he was right.
