For 2 flutes and cello. Includes Trio No 1 in C, Hob.IV-1; Trio No 2 in G, Hob.IV-3; Trio Movement in G, Hob.IV-4; Andante in G, Hob.IV-2. Set of parts. Matching score available, see item 56132. Notes: London, with its bustling musical scene, always provided Haydn with welcome surroundings at a time when the flute was extraordinarily popular among English amateurs. The Earl of Abingdon, an accomplished flautist, undoubtedly enjoyed playing these entertaining trios. Abingdon was a member of Haydn's circle of acquaintances in London and a composer in his own right: a theme from one of his songs ("The Lady's Mirror") served Haydn for a set of variations in the second trio. Neither men could have foreseen the huge success that these cheerful and straightforward pieces would enjoy among music-lovers all over the world.
