Joseph Fiala (c1748 - 1816) was a famous Czech composer and performer of his day. Mozart spoke highly of him, and he held a succession of important musical posts at European courts. His Divertimento inD is a recent discovery, and is published here for the first time.
Written for the 'Klappentrompete' (Keyed Trumpet), it dates from the same period as Haydn's Concerto in E flat for the same instrument,and represents a welcome (and technically less demanding) addition to the classical Trumpet repertory.
