Minuet second:

The work is one of the few symphonies of the Classical era to place the Minuet second (others include Haydn’s 37th and 44th, and his brother Michael’s 15th and 16th).

No nickname:

This is another of so many symphonies that does not stand out in my mind as unique, but I still enjoyed it.
