Haydn's concertante works written at the court of the Princes of Esterházy, reflect the skills of individual members of the Esterhazy court orchestra. Thus Haydn created the Violin Concerto in C major Hob. VIIa:1 for the court orchestra's concertmaster, Luigi omasini, a famous violinist of the day and a composer himself. Tomasini must have inspired Haydn to the technical brilliance and the lovely, Italian tone that resonates through this still quasi-Baroque concerto. Our Urtext edition is based on the Haydn Complete Edition, also published by G. Henle Verlag. In the deatiled preface, one can read about which sources were consulted for the edition, which is rounded off by sophisticated string bowings and fingerings by Kurt Guntner, and by cadenzas created by Franz Beyer.

    This is a pretty standard rep concerto. The first movement is full of great Haydn themes, and the second movement is somber and beautiful. The third Presto movement is exciting your typical Haydn play for your life type of movements lol. All in all, a really great example of refined...

    but inventive taste in the 18th century German style.

  • February 16, 2009 Haydn violin concerto in C

    This is a beautiful concerto, not too difficult though very substantial. It does not go above fifth position very often except for the cadenza.
