Michael Haydn's Symphony No. 19 in D major, Perger 11, Sherman 19, MH 198, was written in Salzburg in 1774.[1]

Scored for flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns (featured prominently in the Andante second movement), and strings, in four movements:

  1. Allegro
  2. Andante, in D minor
  3. Minuet and Trio (the latter in D minor)
  4. Presto assai

Of the symphonies with Minuets, this is one of the few to have a minor key trio (another is Symphony No. 5).
