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 Concerto per 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.
