Horn Concerto No. 1 (Haydn)

Horn Concerto No. 1 (Haydn)

Joseph Haydn's Horn Concerto No. 1 in D major, Hoboken VIID:3 was completed in 1762, "when Haydn was new to the Esterhazy court." [John Humphries, "The Early Horn: A Practical Guide". Cambridge University Press (2000): 83] The work is in three movements:

*I. Allegro
*II. Adagio
*III. Allegro

Because of the low range writing in the Adagio, some musicologists believe the concerto was written for Thaddaus Steinmuller. Other musicologists believe it was a present for the baptism ceremony of one of the children of Joseph Leutgeb (for whom Mozart wrote his horn concertos).
