As witnessed by the autograph dating, the Symphony No. 89 in F major was composed by Haydn in 1787, just one year after the six Paris Symphonies. Together with his twin work, the Symphony in G major No. 88, it was written for the violinist Johann Tost, who sold it to the Parisian publisher Sieber. In both works, Haydn once again appealed to the compositional conquests that ensured the success of Parisian symphonies: mastery of composition technique, richness of musical ideas and detail, and very colorful individual use of the wind register (which still does not include no clarinets). Unlike the thrilling Symphony in G major, the character of the Symphony in F major is rather kindly pastoral, which does not prevent, in some places, to reach a great dramatism. The study score incorporates the musical text of the complete edition of Haydn's works thus offering the guarantees of the highest scientific quality. A substantial foreword and a brief critical apparatus make this handy score an ideal companion for all fans of Haydn and those who want to become one.
