Gaetano Donizetti's Concertino for English horn (1816) is probably the most important nineteenth century concerto for this specific instrument, and certainly the most performed one. Fifty years after Robert Meylan's edition (Litolff / Peters) based on the autograph score located in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the source material needed to be reconsidered, resulting in a new critical edition of this piece. Not only is this piece to be performed in another key, moreover, the orchestra parts material for the premiere of 19 June 1817 at the Liceo Filarmonico in Bologna shows many corrections and variations, and give interesting insights in the performance practice of that era, including written out cadenzas, likely by the soloist and dedicatee Giovanni Catolfi.
