Symphony No. 37 (Haydn)
The Symphony No. 37 in C major, Hob. I/37, is a symphony by Joseph Haydn. The numbering is misleading, as it is one of Haydn's earliest symphonies. A copy of the score at Český Krumlov is dated 1758.
The work is in four movements:
Similarities have been drawn between the 2
4 opening movement and the 2
4 finale to Georg von Reutter's Servizio di tavola in C major from 1757. The two knew each other because Reutter was the director of music in St. Stephen's Cathedral where Haydn sang as a child.
The slow movement is very similar to the slow movement in one of Haydn's earliest piano sonatas, Hob. XVI:Es2.
