The surprise fortissimo chord in measure sixteen of Haydn's simple theme has become one of the most famous chords in the history of music. The entire movement that contains this classic gem has been made accessible to the modern student group by expanding the original instrumentation, changing the meter to 4/4, doubling a few voices and adding bowings and articulations. This arrangement is a wonderful way to teach your students theme and variations form. You'll be "surprised" at how accessible this piece is!
