Symphony No. 20 (Haydn)
The Symphony No. 20 in C major (Hoboken I/20) is a festive symphony by Joseph Haydn. Hodgson places the composition date in either 1761 or 1762 while Brown states that it was likely composed before 1761.  Calvin Stapert affirmatively states that it was composed in the group of 15 symphonies within Haydns tenure with Count Morzin (1757 - March 1761). And is festive, like C major Symphonies 32, 33, and 37. It is scored for 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, strings and continuo. The symphony is in four movements:
