Johann Baptist Georg Neruda (~1711–1776) Concertino in Eb major
Urtext edited by Ludwig Güttler [corno da caccia(tr Eb/Bb),str,bc] duration: 14'
Neruda’s most famous work was probably composed for the Dresden horn player Anton Joseph Hampel, who mastered the highly specialized art of clarino playing on the corno da caccia.

It is therefore not surprising that the concerto (due to the very high range of the concertante horn section) initially established itself as a trumpet concerto. Recent attempts with modern, high horns, however, allow a more approximate reproduction of the original. The present edition by the well-known trumpet player Ludwig Güttler takes both options into account. This concerto can be performed on both the E-flat as well as the B-flat trumpet. We recommend, however, performing it on the corno da caccia in high B-flat.
