Notes and Editorial Reviews

If the concertos for keyboard instruments are not predominant among Haydnís works, and will never equal his symphonic works or even his quartets, then his works for string instruments appear even less important, as evidenced by the small number he composed. However, it is this genre of compositions which include some of Haydnís most popular concertos today, among them the Concerto in C major for cello and orchestra that was only discovered in 1961. Three concertos for violin and orchestra were handed down by Franz Joseph Haydn. Five others which at one time were attributed to him were written by other composers. The three concertos by Haydn were all written after his appointment as court composer of Prince Esterhazy in 1761 and were Read more dedicated to Luigi Tomasini, the Italian violinist of the court orchestra.
