Born in Austria in 1732, Joseph Haydn is one of the most prominent composers of the classical period, and is held in high regard for the development of the classical symphony and the string quartet. Haydn wrote his one and only trumpet concerto in 1796 for Anton Weidinger.
Weidinger was a very good friend of Haydn's, who had developed a new trumpet called the keyed trumpet (the forerunner to the modern valve trumpet we see today), and as-such, the keyed trumpet was able to play chromatically through its range. This edition of the trumpet concerto sets out to stay true to Haydn, whilst incorporating several editorial enhancements. These enhancements have been resourced from recordings throughout the 20th and 21st Centuries, with notable references to Wynton Marsalis, Alison Balsom and Tine Thing Helseth. Great care has gone into this edition to include the appropriate amount of notation for performance on the modern trumpet, whilst staying true to the style of the period.
Performers are encouraged to find their own interpretations, and thus, the editor has been careful not to over-notate articulations and other stylistic nuances.
