A three-movement symphony
in the key of C, once thought to have been written by Franz Joseph Haydn
, now more commonly attributed to Leopold Mozart
(father of the famous Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
). Performed with the aid of toy instruments (e.g. rattle and cuckoo
), it is also a "toy
" symphony in the sense that it is a rather trivial instance of symphonic possibility.
Unfortunately, Leopold didn't foreshadow his son's genius; Wolfgang might have been able to make the instruments produce something other than cacophony. As it stands, it's reminiscent of bad bleep-blorpy electronica
