      Symphony No. 52


This Haydn symphony movement is a powerful example of the Sturm und Drang (“storm and stress”) style favored by the composer in the 1760s and ’70s. Arranged for string orchestra in the dark key of D minor, rhythmic and harmonic agitation propel the music forward with strong themes and energy. Both musicians and audience will be captivated by this masterpiece, making it a perfect concert or contest closer for your advancing ensemble.
