Symphony No. 37 in C major
Like No.32, this work exemplifies Haydn's C major style; insofar as it appears not to have originally included trumpets and drums, however, it is less festive and more nearly typical of his early symphonies in general. The opening Presto, for all its clarity of form, is a fantastic farrago of distinct but related motives, whose shapes and formal functions constantly change. The stately minuet with dotted rhythms again comes second, and again the trio is in the tonic minor, this time with more pointedly original material. The Andante is also in the tonic minor (an unusual 'doubling' of the related key); it is more regular in phrasing than that in No. 32, but has greater variety of material and texture and attains greater expressiveness and harmonic range in the development. The finale, again Presto 3/8, is even more abrupt and includes more internal contrast than most of its colleagues.
