At the end of the 18th century; the Viennese court trumpeter Anton Weidinger (1767-1852) invented the “Klappentrompete” (or keyed trumpet); which allowed the trumpet to play the octave in chromatic steps. Thus in 1796 Joseph Haydn composed his Trumpet Concerto in E flat major Hob. VIIe:1; which numbers today among the standard works of its genre; especially for Weidinger. Contemporaries described the tone of the Klappentrompete as soft and delicate; and perhaps this is why Haydn placed more value on lyrical themes than on brilliance in this concerto. For performances today; a B flat trumpet or even a flugelhorn may be a better choice than an E flat trumpet. The music text of our edition is based on that of the Haydn Complete Edition; which G. Henle also publishes.
