Franz Joseph Haydn composed the "Trumpet Concerto In Eb" in 1796 for the Viennese trumpeter, Anton Weidinger, the inventor of the valved trumpet. The premier performance was well received, not only because of the quality of the composition, but also because it was the first time that the audience had heard a trumpet play a chromatic scale.
Here the complete concerto is rendered entirely in Finale 2006 using the GPO instruments as follows;
Flute Plr 1
Modern Oboe Plr 1
Bassoon Plr 1
French Horn Plr 1
Tenor Trombone Plr 1
Trumpet 1 Solo (soloist voice)
Violins 1 Sus + Short
Violins 2 Sus + Short & Short Bow & Pizzicato
Violas Sus + Short & Short Bow & Pizzicato
Cellos Sus + Short & Short Bow & Pizzicato
Basses Sus + Short & Short Bow & Pizzicato
The trumpet solo music that I found had amazingly few markings with respect to dynamics and phrasing so all of the phrasing and dynamics was tailored for this rendering, shaping it as if I were playing the solo part. As one might imagine with the notation program I had to do a considerable amount of work to control the tempi changes and dynamics. I also created a set of vibrato controls for the solo trumpet to give some body during sustained notes that otherwise would sound rather lifeless without it. The cadenzas used are by Jay Lichtmann.
I dedicate this performance to Gary Garritan, who had the insight and drive to create practical sounds libraries, without it this performance would not be possible.
