Program Notes

The well-known concerto is arranged for a five-part flexible instrumentation of winds and/or strings. It can also be used in a full ensemble situation to provide options for timbre and volume to not overpower the soloist.

- Program Note by publisher


Haydn’s concerto marked an important stage in the development of the trumpet. For several decades the use of the instrument had declined from its position of greatness during the baroque “golden age of brass.” The baroque trumpet was limited by its lack of valves to the natural harmonics of the upper register, and it remained for Anton Weidinger, a trumpeter in the Viennese court, to invent a trumpet with keys which could play a chromatic scale. Haydn wrote the concerto for Weidinger in 1796, and the trumpeter-inventor is credited with the first performance by a program that may be seen in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

Typical of the period, the first movement has two expositions, the first of which is performed by the accompaniment. Near the end of the movement the soloist is allowed to express himself with a cadenza, either original or “borrowed.” The andante second movement demonstrates the romantic sound of the trumpet and the finale combines rondo and sonata forms in a skillful and climactic manner, This work, written at the zenith of Haydn’s compositional period, has been described as his “most perfect concerto.”
