On Making a new Edition of Donizetti's Concertino for English Horn

Research output: Contribution to specialist/vulgarizing publicationArticleSpecialist

Abstract

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 Meylan's edition (Peters), based on the Paris autograph score, 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 Bologna manuscript orchestra parts show 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.
