Concerto for Horn (Trumpet) and Strings in E-Flat Major
Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition
Composer: Johann Baptist Georg Neruda
Editor: Dominik Rahmer
One of the best-loved trumpet concertos today is actually a horn concerto: Neruda composed it in about 1750 at the Dresden Court, where he met the greatest horn virtuosos of the day. As a result, the solo part is immensely demanding. But on the trumpet, these difficulties do not exist. This new edition is based on the only extant manuscript source. It takes modern performance practice into account and thus also contains parts for trumpet in E flat and in B flat.
