Franz Joseph Haydn's (1732-1809) Symphony No. 101 in D major, Hob. 1:101, is the ninth of his twelve London symphonies. It is known as 'The Clock' due to the "ticking" rhythm that pervades the second movement. Premiered in London at the Hanover Square Rooms on March 3rd, 1794, by a group of sixty musicians assembled by Haydn's friend and colleague Johann Peter Salomon, the work was enthusiastically received, and remains a popular and frequent part of concert programs today. Instrumentation: 126.96.36.199: 188.8.131.52: Timp: Str (4-4-3-3-3 in set).
