The Trumpet Concerto is possibly Haydn’s finest work in the concerto form; this masterly interpretation was the ultimate best seller on the Haydn Society Label when it first appeared on LP, selling over thirtythousand copies within the first year of publication! Almost as popular was Mozart’s Posthorn Serenade featuring the great Viennese wind player Helmut Wobisch on the posthorn (resurrected from museum exhibition status for the first time in the history of recorded sound).
