Haydn's"Farewell Symphony"is one of the most frequently played works of the symphonic repertoire. The popular title did not derive from the composer but refers to the final movement, at the end of which (Adagio) the musicians stop playing one after the other, leaving only two violins to end the work. According to an anecdote, the musicians' exit was a means of making reference to the demands of orchestral work at Esterhaza at the end of the season.

The publication of Haydn's"Sturm und Drang"Symphonies - the Farewell Symphony and Symphony No. 48 (the so-called"Maria Theresia"Symphony) - represents a continuation of the cooperation between Barenreiter and the Henle publishing company for editions of larger choral works, operas and symphonic works.

The publications are based on the Henle"Complete Edition of the Works of Joseph Haydn".

Both symphonies (BA 10971 and BA 10972) will be published with a full score and orchestra parts on sale in a large format.
