List of symphonies by Joseph Haydn

There are 104 symphonies by the Classical composer Joseph Haydn on which numbers are now generally agreed upon. These numbers correspond to the ones given in Anthony van Hoboken's catalogue of all his works. It is generally thought that this numbering system does not reflect the actual order of composition very well, but the system is now almost universally used (other systems have been used in the past). These works are:

Hoboken also includes four other works he calls "symphonies":

It should be noted that No. 105 is not really a symphony, but a symphonie concertante (that is, a concerto-like work with more than one solo instrument, in this case four), and as No. 106 has not survived to the present day, the number of symphonies by Haydn is usually reckoned to be 106.
