This lovely Haydn theme was written in 2/4 time.
There are 2 beats to the measure and a quarter note gets one count.
The song begins softly and the "surprise" is a suddenly very loud chord,
the G chord on the second beat in measure 16.
Haydn, Franz Joseph (1732-1809)
Symphony No. 94 in G major "Surprise"
