Symphony No. 32 in C major
Unlike No. 2, this, symphony with trumpets and drums splendidly incorporates the festive C major type common in Haydn's early oeuvre. As noted above, it exhibits the otherwise unusual 2/4. opening movement typical of this group. The development leads to what may or may not be a 'false recapitulation': after a barely sufficient length of time and degree of activity, the tonic is well and clearly prepared; but what follows is a new, imitative, modulating version of the second theme; the opening theme follows a little later. The galant Menuet follows in second position; the trio in the minor shows how much Haydn could do with conventional formulas. The slow movement, by exception an Adagio ma non troppo, is in the subdominant; in brief sonata form, it too adverts briefly to the minor just when we think the true reprise is at hand. The brief Presto 3/8 finale is in miniature sonata form, with a middle section that, however brief, genuinely modulates.
