Haydn's Concerto for Trumpet (Concerto per il Clarino) in E-flat major was written in 1796 for his friend Anton Weidinger. Weidinger invented a keyed Trumpet which could play chromatically. The Concerto is the first of its kind because of this new technique and Haydn includes melodies and scales in the middle and low register, unknown to the earlier valveless instruments.
The work is in the traditional three movements, Fast-Slow-Fast exploiting scales, arpeggios, trills, legato and marcato techniques.Â
Justin Bland has skillfully arranged this great work for Solo Trumpet, 9-part Brass Ensemble and Timpani. Instrumentation is:
Solo Trumpet in E-Flat, Trumpet in E-flat, 2 Trumpets (Cornets) in B-flat, Flugelhorn, Horn, 2 Trombones, Euphonium, Tuba and Timpani.
The work is appropriate for advanced performers.
