CONCERTO FOR HoRN
by Saverio Raffaele Mercadante
arranged by: Brian Harris

Although he enjoyed popularity for his 55+ operas during his lifetime (1795?-1870), Italian composer Saverio Mercadante's only Concerto for Horn is rarely performed today. Written around 1820, this two-movement work has a beautifully melodic first movement, followed by a fast and technically-challenging concluding movement.

This transcription from string orchestra to full wind ensemble accompaniment (see Instrumentation, below) works with the solo horn part from most published piano/solo horn arrangements (Kendor/Kuyper, etc).
