The subtitle “Farewell” for this symphony was earned through its use as an aural suggestion, of sorts, by Haydn, on behalf of the members of the court orchestra to his patron, Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy.  Evidently the Prince had stayed at his summer residence at Eszterháza for many months past the normal time he usually returned to Eisenstadt for the winter season.  This tardiness, of course, kept all the orchestra members away from their families and other duties in Eisenstadt.  In the last movement, each member of the orchestra, one by one, departs the stage, symbolizing their urgent request to get back to their homes. 

This solo is edited in a comprehensive and detailed manner.  Larry Hurst’s insightful performance suggestions are enclosed with this music.
