Hob.I:91 Symphony in E Flat Major
Symphony No. 91 in E Flat Major, the second of the symphonies written for the Loge Olympique as a follow-up to the Paris Symphonies and simultaneously delivered to the Prince of Oettingen-Wallenstein features many a detail which delight the connoisseur: the principal theme of the first movement is a two-part structure in double counterpoint at the octave, that is, the higher voice and lower voice are interchangeable in accordance with strict rules. In the intermediary episode other contrapuntal parts appear which are then brought to a joint culmination at the end of the movement. The second movement, a movement of variations, has several humorous effects, such as the long trills shortly before the end which sound as if the entire orchestra has got out of control. The final movement features additional compositional treats for connoisseurs: for example, specific segments are extracted from the main theme in order to be used then for accompaniment, etc.
