Symphony No. 104 (London) - Joseph Haydn

Information about Symphony No. 104 by Joseph Haydn, and the best recordings available on CD or for download.

This is the last of Haydn's symphonies.

It is nicknamed the "London" because it was the last of the twelve London symphonies (numbers 93-104), so called because they were written in London for a series of concerts he gave during his first visit to England between 1791 and 1792.

The work was written in 1795, and is in the key of D major.
