Symphony no. 96
A title applicable to Haydn himself, the man who “invented” the string quartet and the symphony. A huge chandelier crashed to the floor during the première of Symphony 96 in London, but nobody was injured – a miracle indeed! As is this marvel of a symphony so full of life and invention that it charms listeners this very day.
