Haydn’s popular Trumpet Concerto is best known for its thrilling first movement cadenza and brilliant and inventive Rondo finale.The Horn Concerto No. 1 is also notable for the technical demands made on the soloist, not least the large octave leaps in the lower range of the instrument. The Harpsichord Concerto in D major is one of a group of such works apparently designed initially for the organ. The relatively extended and rarely recorded Double Concerto for Harpsichord, Violin and Strings is Haydn’s only surviving concerto for two solo instruments.


Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,August 2008

This delightful disc offers a stroll in the garden of Papa Haydn’s creations, with the smiling author at his genial best. Yet it is not what one might expect. The Horn concerto is one of two in the key of D, an extremely demanding work that soloist Dmitri Babanov sails through impeccably (the other concerto is spurious). The harpsichord concerto, also in D, is not “the” familiar one, but rather one of over a dozen works for keyboard and strings written over the long span at Esterhaza—a good, substantial vehicle for soloist Harald Hoeren’s mastery. The double concerto for violin, keyboard and strings features excellent violinist Ariadne Daskalakis (the blurb refers to this work as Haydn’s only double concerto, but surely the 1765 Sinfonia


Review By David Denton, Naxos,July 2008

Having completed their cycle of Haydn’s symphonies, Naxos now turns its attention to his quite short catalogue of concertos. Of the half dozen wind concertos originally attributed to him, only the Horn Concerto in D major and the famous Trumpet Concerto in E flat major can with any certainty have come from him. Maybe it was Joseph Leutgeb, for whom Mozart wrote his concertos, who would have been the intended horn player, the score often calling for an accomplished player high on the instrument. For the basic instruments of the time it would have required much expertise, but, by contrast, Haydn had a keyed trumpet at his disposal which would have provided the possibility of writing challenging virtuosity. There is uncertainty as the origins of the Harpsichord Concerto in D
