Micheal Haydn Trumpet Concerto in D Major
I recently bought the Wynton Marsalis "The London Concert" Cd, and first of all let me say that I am amazed. I never realized just how good he was, haha.
My question is: Track number 12 is the Micheal Haydn Concerto. The booklet that comes with the cd says that this piece has the highest note written for trumpet in this period. Does anyone know what that note is?
When I was listening to it, I didn't really think it was that high. Don't get me wrong, it's still higher than I will ever be able to play, it just dosn't seem high enough to be considered the highest note written for trumpet in that period.
So I have two questions:
1) Does anyone know what note that is?
2) Has anyone ever performed this piece before? If you have, you are my new favorite person.
1. It is a Concert "A" above high C
(The Brandenburg's highest note is a concert "G" above high C)
2. I have personally never heard this piece performed live, but Andre recorded it more than once.
the Michael Haydn is on the Baroque Music for Trumpets CD, not the London Concert - Mikey is correct - the note in the M. Haydn is concert A above "high C" (written C above the staff on Piccolo in A)
As yet I have never played this in concert (I would love to sometime when my piccolo playing is on top form), but I did take it long to a lesson at university, once - my teacher said that if I ever took it along again he would probably kill me
He didn't like the extreme register
If you want a real laugh, try playing it on a D trumpet - I did that when bored once - never again!
The first time I heard Wynton's recording of this, I darn near wet my pants. Especially that arpeggiated cadenza in the last movement, starting on tuning note A and ascending to D-F#-A-D-F#-A (concert pitch).

Well, imagine trying to play it on nat!!
Jack - oddly enough, I tried this at an ITG - I actually found it easier than on a valved D - please note easier, not easy - still mind-blowingly stupid idea - great way to stuff up your chops for the rest of the day (which I did) - not something to do when there is a young lady with you (which there was ) - she won't appreciate your chops being completely screwed up (she didn't ).
I first encountered the Michael Haydn on a Adolph Scherbaum recording. He was an amazing player.

Be sure Brain is engaged before putting Mouthpiece in gear.
Wynton is great.
Have you heard Maurice Andre's recording?
It is great too.
Ken Robinson plays it great. It will be on his next recording. His first album is excellent.
