Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in G Major Hob. VIIa:4 by : Gunter Thomas : Heinz Lohmann : Joseph Haydn
Three violin concertos by Joseph Hadyn survive; of which the ones in C major and A major were written at the court of Prince Esterhazy. The violin concerto in G major Hob. VII:4 was probably composed in the early 1760s; before his appointment by the prince. It thus comes as no surprise that it is very different from the other two concertos; the solo violin part hardly goes beyond the third position; and the focus is more on lyricism than virtuosity. For (younger) violin learners the work thus offers a good opportunity to engage with Haydn the composer for the first time. Our Urtext edition is based on the Haydn Complete Edition; also published by G. Henle Verla. The extensive preface includes a discussion of authenticity; among other things. The edition is rounded off by sophisticated string bowing and fingerings by Kurt Guntner; along with cadenzas created by Franz Beyer.
