Symphony No.70 in D major, Hob.I:70 (Haydn, Joseph)
London: Cianchettini and Sperati, n.d.(1807). Plate No.7
New York: Da Capo Press, 1967.
This score has a smaller orchestration than #31746 below: flute obligato, 2 oboes, 2 horns, violin 1, violin 2, viola, bass instrument complex (cellos, basses, bassoons); the timpani are missing. Furthermore, the entire Minuet was excluded from the original publication; it was added as an Appendix and modernly typeset some time in the late 19th or early 20th century.

This score is grossly inefficient in regards to pages; the conductor would have to flip almost a hundred pages over the course of the Symphony. If you own a copy of the H. C. R. L. edition score but want to use the Delarte edition parts, you could pencil in the rehearsal letters into the H. C. R. L. edition and use that as your conductor's score.
Alonso del Arte
Horns in F and trumpets in C as opposed to in D for both in the original (horns of course reading a seventh down and trumpets a second up). At first I was going to put the trumpets in B-flat, but because several high As become written B-naturals, putting them just outside the practical range given by Kent Kennan in The Technique of Orchestration, I decided in favor of C trumpets. The 4-sharp key signature B-flat trumpets would require would otherwise have been no deterrent.
