Joseph Haydn's Symphony 'A' in B major, Hoboken I/107, was written between 1757 and 1760. It is not in the usual numbering scheme for Haydn symphonies because it was originally thought to be a string quartet (Op. 1/5) and was catalogued as Hob. III/5.[1][2]

It is scored for 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns in B alto, strings and continuo.[3]

  1. Allegro, 3

  2. Andante, 2

    in E major
