|1770||J.C Bach||Symphony Op 18 No. 4 in D major|
|Instrumentation||Strings, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani|
|Movements||I: Allegro con spirito (D) II: Andante (G) III: Presto (D)|
|Key concepts||J.C. Bach’s music is firmly in the galant style and light years away from the style of his father. The orchestra here is slightly larger than the early Classical standard, with trumpets added alongside horns. He is clearly influenced by the Mannheim composers – notice the crescendo starting on the second line of the first movement.
Topics A and E (this was originally included on notes for this topics but Haydn 2 is an equally good example so I have now removed it)
