Balanced interests

I heard some people talking about Haydn's Symphony No. 47 in G. Can someone tell me about it? Is it actually interesting, or is the palindrome just a musical gimmick?

Dang it! I missed the seventh annual Okie Noodling Tournament!


I like it, but then I'm always a fan of classical music that can be written as a mathematical formula. For a very rough idea of what it sounds like in a MIDI format, check out the classical music archives at Haydn archives -- you will be asked to sign up for a free membership to hear the MIDI files, but you can hear four movements to get an understanding of the form. Of course a recording of a real performance will be MUCH better with the tonal nuances.
