The first violin part for Haydn's Symphony No. 88 in G major, H. 1/88 has been edited by Richard Roberts, concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. Roberts' bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.
Haydn's Symphony No. 88 is a four-movement work. Beginning with a brief introduction, it moves quickly into the main body of the first movement with a statement of the main theme in the strings. Almost every statement from this point forward derives from a previous idea. The slow second movement moves to the dominant D major and marks Haydn's first use of trumpets and timpani in his slow movements. The minuet & trio returns to G major with a rather simple theme. The symphony concludes with a sonata-rondo finale that ends with an unusual cadence on the mediant: a "perpetual-motion finale" that is considered one of the most cheerful ever written by Haydn.
