Haydn Trumpet Concerto (2nd Movement)
By Franz Joseph Haydn / arr. L. C. Harnsberger
Grade: 2 (Medium Easy)
Haydn's Trumpet Concerto is probably the most-performed trumpet concerto ever written. The second movement is known equally for both its beautiful melody and wonderful use of trumpet as a solo instrument. In this adaptation, the key is lowered to avoid the high notes of the original, sixteenth notes are eliminated by using a 3/4 time signature and difficult passages are simplified-making it ideal for younger soloists. Let your star trumpet player shine with this well-crafted adaptation of a repertoire standard.
