Symphony No. 87 (Haydn)
The Symphony No. 87 in A major, Hoboken I/87, is the last of the six Paris Symphonies (numbers 82–87) written by Franz Joseph Haydn. It was written in 1786, but performed in 1787 by the Concert de la Loge Olympique, after having been commissioned for performance there by Count Count d'Ogney in 1785.
The trio of the Minuet prominently features the solo oboe which rises a high E.
