Let's Listen: Symphony No. 100 in G major
Affectionately known as the Military Symphony, no.100 is one of Haydn's London Symphonies. This video was posted on youtube by user Haydn House; the orchestra identified as "Concertgebouw, Jansons." I apologize for not being more specific about this fine group; it is disappointing when those posting do not label their videos better. That notwithstanding, if you wish to hear a lot more Haydn, Haydn House has a well-organized and extensive listing of fine Haydn performance videos, with lavish commentary.
