Tune of the Day: Haydn's Military Movement

from Symphony No. 100, arranged for two flutes

Haydn's Symphony No. 100 is nicknamed “Military” because of its second movement, which features prominent fanfares written for trumpets and percussion effects. After the 1794 premiere, one reviewer wrote that the second movement evoked the “hellish roar of war increasing to a climax of horrid sublimity!”

The present arrangement for two flutes of the second movement's melody is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
