Two of Joseph Haydn's three concertos for horn and orchestra have been lost, while two further horn concertos have often been mistakenly ascribed to him. Haydn's sole surviving horn concerto, whose authenticity is not in doubt is this one in D Major, Hob. VIId:3. Our Urtext edition is based on the Haydn Complete Edition, and offers two solo parts: that in D follows Haydn's autograph, while we also supply a part for the modern horn in F. Solo cadenzas are provided for all three movements. The cadenzas printed in the enclosed horn parts are by horn player Johannes Ritzkowsky; as far as possible they exploit the limited possibilities offered by the natural horn of Haydn's own time. They should not cause today's horn players any great problems, and will be a welcome bonus.
