Weil/Tafelmusik seems to be the way to go. Thanks for the tip.

So symphonies 90-92 are known as the Wallerstein symphonies.  I did not know that.  Haven't listened to this yet.

The Symphony No. 83 is one of my most beloved Haydn symphonies. As I am more a passional human being, I love the pushing and driving beginning. It's enough to give energy to the whole symphony. Really the title of The hen or Le poule is rather naïve and silly IMHO. This is music intelligently constructed, fun, rhytmic, melodious.

Who by?

I have professional experience of a small group of people coming up with terminology and then acting as if everyone else also uses it.

Haydn apparently managed to simultaneously compose symphonies commissioned for Paris and for this German principality... by giving them the same works.

Here is the story, if anyone is interested. Part 1 - Part 2. Really, they are the Paris Symphonies Part 2, but as you will see, Haydn had other ideas!  :D

I listened to 90.  Nice, but doesn't dislodge Dennis Russell Davies from the top spot.

Haven't heard either one of those. I have Brüggen and Kuijken, pretty well satisfied on any given day listening to them. Of course, many more of #92... :)
