Haydn Symphony No. 31 – Bass Finale

Edited by Edwin Barker

Title: Symphony No. 31
Composer: Franz Joseph Haydn
Instrument: Bass
Edited By: Edwin Barker
Instrumentation: Orchestral
Pages: 3

The bass part for the finale of Haydn's Symphony No. 31 in D major, H.1/31 has been edited by Edwin Barker, an American who was appointed principal bassist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra at the age 22. Barker's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.

Joseph Haydn composed Symphony No. 31 in 1765 for his patron Nikolaus Esterházy. The work is scored for one flute, two oboes, four horns, and strings. With an orchestra of only around 16-17 players, four horns comprised roughly a quarter of the entire ensemble, unusual even for composers who would come much later. Because of this the work is nicknamed the "Horn Signal" symphony.
