Symphony No. 4 (Haydn)
Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 4 in D major, Hoboken I/4, is believed to have been written between 1757 and 1761.
The second movement features a syncopated second violin part. The walking eighth-notes of the second violins are offset by half a step (a sixteenth note) from the first violins that play above it.
The finale is marked Tempo di menuetto, but is not in the 3
4 time of a minuet, but in the 3
8 time which is typical of Haydn's other early symphonic finales. Also, unlike other minuets, the movement lacks a central trio section.
