Surprise Symphony. Franz Joseph Haydn was an Austrian composer, one of the most productive and most famous composers of the Classical period. He was known as the father of the symphonies because we wrote mainly this genre. Between his works is The Symphony No. 94 in G major, which is the second of the 12 so-called London symphonies. This symphony is mostly known by its nickname, the Surprise Symphony. It is typical about Haydn’s music that incorporates many jokes and tricks, and the Surprise Symphony contains perhaps the most famous of all. The whole symphony had soft and gentle flow, and same goes for the second movement. It was written like that, but at the London premiere on March 23, 1792, he added a startlingly loud chord that interrupted the whole mood and this distinctive feature did not appear in the original score. That surprised the audience completely, and this symphony stayed known for this name. And that is a little history of music, we are sure that you are richer now by few interesting facts about the work of Haydn, so lets go back to our game. It is again about a surprise symphony but little bit different.
