Symphony No. 24 in D major
When Haydn first entered the service of the Es-terházy family in 1761, a new flute player, Franz Sigl, was engaged; he remained in post until 13 September 1765 when he was dismissed for setting a roof on fire while shooting birds. Following Haydn's diplomatic intervention Sigl was re-engaged the following year. Although Haydn composed a flute concerto for Sigl (now lost) he included the instrument in only a minority of his symphonies at this time. In this D major symphony from 1764 the flute is featured in the Adagio, which could easily be a concerto slow movement (complete with cadenza), and the trio of the minuet, where it shares the melodic lead with horns and first violins. Elsewhere in this bright and confident symphony the flute is replaced by oboes.
