Trumpet Concerto in C, MH60
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Michael Haydn (1737–1806), Joseph’s younger brother, was Konzertmeister and Organist to the Archbishop of Salzburg. His Trumpet Concerto in C (MH60) was composed in 1763 for an unidentified trumpeter of unusual virtuosity. Scored for trumpet, two flutes, strings and harpsichord continuo, its opening movement is a re-working of a violin concerto (MH52) written circa 1760–62 in Grosswardein. The trumpet is taken to stratospheric heights—to its 21st harmonic—notes which are only obtainable by a player of exceptional ability. The solo trumpet part is interwoven with that of the flutes, showing that even in post-Baroque times the trumpet could still be played with exquisite subtlety. The faster, second movement, more conventional in its form, finds the trumpet skipping around playfully in its highest register.
