Franz Joseph Haydn Trumpet and Horn Concerti

I often listened to wonderful classical music coming from Jim's office. Whether or not I heard Franz Joseph Haydn Trumpet and Horn Concerti I do not know.  The music on the CD all blends so nicely. It could have been one of many classical presentations he listened to. Haydn  was an Austrian composer of the Classical period, and was instrumental in the development of chamber music. Composing during the mid to late 1700s, he became known as the Father of Symphony and the Father of the String Quartet.

The Trumpet and Horn Concerti has rich horn sounds that stir listeners' souls. I enjoyed listening to it very much.  It is the type of music you can listen to completely, or turn it on in the background and go about your business.

Franz Joseph Haydn Trumpet and Horn Concerti includes the following:

  • Trumpet Concerto in E-flat Major 
  • Horn Concerto No. 1 in D Major
  • Horn Concerto No. 2 in D Major
  • Divertimento a Tre in E-flat Major
Got that?  No flowery names from Haydn.
The CD was release in 1991 by the Musical Heritage Society. The Philharmonia Orchestra, Christopher Warren-Green, Conductor.

For those who do not know, a concerti (or concerto) is a composition for one or more principal instruments with orchestral accompaniment. I learned something new today.
