Joseph Haydn



Franz Joseph Haydn (31 March 1732 – 31 May 1809), known as Joseph Haydn, was an Austrian composer, one of the most prolific and prominent of the Classical period.




Trumpet Concerto (Haydn)



Joseph Haydn’s Concertoper il Clarino, Hob.: VII e, 1 (Trumpet Concerto in E flat major) was written in 1796, when he was 64 years old, for his long-time friend Anton Weidinger.



The work is composed in three movements (typical of a concerto), and they are marked as follows:

I. Allegro (sonata)
II. Andante (sonata)
III. Finale-Allegro (rondo)

In addition to the solo trumpet, the concerto is scored for an orchestra consisting of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 (presumably natural) trumpets (which generally play in support of the horns or timpani rather than the solo trumpet), timpani and strings.
