Notes and Editorial Reviews

Haydn composed the Symphony No. 102 at the turn of the year 1794/95 during the course of his second trip to London. It was the first symphony for the concert series entitled “Opera Concerts”. The world premiere took place on 2, February 1795 at the King’s Theatre in London. The Symphony No. 103, the “Drumroll Symphony”, is probably better known and more popular. It is Haydn’s penultimate symphony and also received its first performance in 1795 at the King’s Theatre in London. Here, Oehms Classics presents a studio recording made in May 2011 with the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra conducted by Ivor Bolton. - Oehms Haydn composed the Symphony No. 102 at the turn of the year 1794/95 during the course of his second trip to London.
