    i think the oboes should move more.

    mahler had a specific calling for oboes and clarinets to play with their bells 'up'. i don't think haydn did.

    Quite possibly my favorite Haydn symphony, and that's saying a lot. Excellent performance from start to finish that was quite worthy of the warm ovation it received. Thanks for the splendid upload.

    Where’s the fire, Mariss? First movement is much too quick

    Whether one personally accepts Hoboken numbers (#100) or prefers to be current is strictly a matter of preference. The newer numbers are far more helpful, especially when you consider that by the Hoboken system, the first 10 symphonies are actually numbered, 1, 37, 18, 2, 4, 27, 10, 20, 17 & 19.

    Now to the symphony at hand. Where is the ominous terror which Haydn extracted from his audiences with the second movement? He meant it to be an actual evocation of the horror of war, something which the audience could relate to, since England was at war at the time. Here, it was played more like a sunny afternoon in the park. The rest was good though.

    This numbering system used here has not been widely adapted, even if it reflects the latest musicological scholarship, and just confuses the overwhelming majority of listeners.

    Thank you so much PapaHaydn for this work of Papa Haydn. Subscribed to you for the great love I have for this great and most underrated composer, as Sir Simon Rattle commented.

    Today, May 31st, is the 207th anniversary of the death of Haydn in Vienna, which was then occupied by Napoleon, recently beaten by Archduke Karl von Habsburg in the battle of Aspern-Essling (May 21-22, 1809).
    This Military Symphony commemorates the two great Austrians.

    I think the "Papa" should be done away with. This is an A list composer not some antique trinket uninteresting guy. I think the tempo of the performance was to slow in movements 1,3, and 4. A great symphony.

    Peculiar how you persist in calling this Symphony Nº 103. The rest of the world sticks with the standard nomenclature, in which this work (the 'Military' symphony) is termed Nº 100. It is true that since that nomenclature was established there were two more early symphonies discovered: those are termed Symphonies 'A' and 'B' (or Hob. I/107 and Hob. I/108). Even if (for the sake of argument) one were to adopt your 'chronology', one would soon see that, as there are only two additional symphonies, one would call the Military Symphony Nº 102, not 103.

    Bonjour ; je ne mets pas en doute votre "nouveau" classement Hoboken : puis-je vous demander les références auxquelles vous faites si sûrement allusion ? Dans tous mes propres soucres, je ne vois aucune modification. Je vous remercie.

    Mas essa entrada dos instrumentos de percussão no final do 4 mov.ficou muito emocionante hein…a platéia foi ao auge da emoção.Observem só a cara de surpresos deles kkkkk,muito bom.

    Bravoooo!!!Magnifico!!!Nota 1000 pra essa orquestra…execução perfeita,regência dominante,composição maravilhosa,compositor experiente….com certeza esse video se tornou referencia da sinfonia 100 de Haydn.

    Good performance.  The grand entrance of the Turkish Instrument Polka Band  at the end was extremely hokey and poorly executed rhythmically, but other than that, very musical.

  • Reply Sylvain Paul Labartette July 27, 2019 at 10:46 am

    ce n'est PAS la n°103 !! mais la n° 100 –> pouvez-vous corriger votre erreur ?!

  • Reply Mike P July 27, 2019 at 10:46 am

    the wind writing in the slow movement! Oh gosh. The oboe playing in this performance makes my heart smile!

  • Reply R x July 27, 2019 at 10:46 am

    First rate performance.  Sorry I can not say the same for the partial screen presentation.  The orchestra just doesn't fit into such a small box.

  • Reply Fabio Grassi July 27, 2019 at 10:46 am

    Very good performance, what a pity slightly too slow the finale, but a lot of fine nuances and a warm approach, go on like this Mr. Jansons!

  • Reply Jonathan Ehrlich July 27, 2019 at 10:46 am

    I like this version. I feel like marching to this.  I especially liked the ending of the final movement as well.
