Divertimento D Major Hob II:8

Divertimento D Major Hob II:8

Series: Henle Music Folios Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition Format: Softcover Composer: Joseph Haydn Editor: Sonja Gerlach

Haydn's numerous divertimentos for strings and winds are cheerful, functional music about whose genesis we know very little. Many stem from Haydn's early years, when the composer had to keep his head above water with musical odd jobs. Thus the Divertimento in D Major Hob. II:8, for two flutes, two horns, two violins and bass, was probably composed already in the 1750s. It is one of Haydn's few chamber works to employ flutes.
