Michael Haydn's Symphony No. 12 in G major, Perger 7, Sherman 12, MH 108, written in Salzburg in 1768, was at one time mistaken for a symphony by Joseph Haydn (Hob. I:G8).

Scored for 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns and strings, in four movements:

  1. Allegro molto
  2. Andante, in C major
  3. Menuetto e Trio
  4. Prestissimo


Included in a set of 20 symphonies on the CPO label with Bohdan Warchal conducting the Slovak Philharmonic. It has also appeared on LP, recorded by the Camerata Academica Salzburg, and by the RIAS-Sinfonietta Berlin.[1]
