Yes, it's Haydn. Beethoven was under Haydn's tutelage, while Mozart was more of a friend, although many of his works have been inspired by Haydn. This is what I got off Wikipedia; someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Is it a symphony? (which would narrow it down to just under 110 choices) :lol:

Correct. Infact, that's the only concerto he wrote for a wind instrument. This is an oft-played piece on B.com.

Hmm, I thought there was a Horn Concerto by Haydn?

Or is that the trumpet one you are talking about? Trumpet = Horn

Well, I seem to have pipped everyone at the post (Navneeth will almost certainly be familiar with such UK horse-racing expressions) - it's a favourite of mine too.
BTW - has anyone noticed the similarity between the second movement of this concerto and Haydn's String Quartet in C (Emperor Quartet) No. 2 - movement no. 2? (The tune of the German National Anthem - Deutschland űber Alles). Haydn - may he repose in the Garden of Eden for ever - also composed such wonderful works as the British National Anthem (same melody as "God Save America").
And I sense an onerous responsibility in selecting the next work; give me a few hours, ok? :) (I need to check what hasn't come up so far.)

:shock: No, Trumpet ≠ Horn!

Trust me on this. I'm an expert here; two children play horn, one played trumpet. The horn costs more, as do the lessons. Also takes up a lot more space in the trunk.

Obviously, I've seen only incomplete lists of Haydn's works. I stand corrected.

Ta - it's just taking me some time to make sure I won't go for something that we had previously.
