About This Work

Haydn’s melodic and exuberant Trumpet Concerto is always a delight for audiences. Here the first movement has been arranged as a quartet as part of our 'Rhythmic Classics' series by Geoff Kingston and is a delightful diversion from the traditional setting. You can however use this arrangement as a classical accompaniment by omitting the Bass Guitar and Drums.

Written by Haydn in 1796 this piece marked an important stage in the development of the trumpet. Until that time, the trumpet was without valves and limited to the natural harmonics. Anton Weidinger invented the valve system that enabled the trumpet to play chromatically, and Haydn used this technological advance at the height of the career to write his "most perfect concerto."
