Concertino in F for English Horn and Orchestra Previously known only through a spurious edition in G Major, the authentic Concertino in F was recently discovered in Italy by Pedro Diaz, English Hornist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. Diaz prepared this ground-breaking authentic edition through comparison of the multiple historical sources and an intimate knowledge of Donizetti's works. The new edition in F Major is embellished with footnotes regarding sources and ornamentation. The piano reduction and orchestral score and parts (available on rental) were prepared by composer/oboist Mark Biggam in tandem with Diaz's work, and the publication includes extensive historical notes by scholar Michael Finkelman.   PEDRO DIAZ joined The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in 2005 and has performed as solo English Hornist in hundreds of productions. As a sought after teacher, Mr. Diaz has lectured extensively at top music conservatories including The Juilliard School, The Manhattan School of Music, The Eastman School of Music,The Hartt Music School, and Duquesne University. His international appearances include masterclasses in Panama, Italy, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, Leipzig, Berlin, and Italy. A native of Puerto Rico, he received his early musical training in the Escuela Libre de Musica, an esteemed public school for the performing arts. He has performed as a guest artist with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, and many other leading ensembles. His playing has been hailed by critics as evocative, eloquent and expressive and is considered one of the pre-eminent players of his generation. Mr. Diaz has performed Wagners Tristan und Isolde 24 times under the batons of James Levine, Daniel Barenboim, and Sir Simon Rattle. Pedro Diazs recording of the Donizetti Concertino in F and other concerti is available from Fox Products and online sources, performed with members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.   MARK BIGGAMs compositions have been recognized in various venues throughout the United States, Central America, Asia, and Europe. He has received awards from ASCAP and the Cleveland Foundation. An oboist himself, many of Biggams compositions have been performed by notable oboists and English Horn players including John Mack, Joseph Robinson, Pedro Diaz, Carolyn Hove, and Dwight Parry. Premieres of his works have been featured at events including the International Double Reed Society and John Mack Legacy Camp. Biggams choral works have gained recognition, awards, and commissions from organizations including the Moravian Music Foundation, Ohio BoyChoir, and Triad Pride Mens Chorus. He also has published arrangements and piano reductions of J.S. Bachs music for Barenreiter-Verlag. His collaborations with Pedro Diaz include the Donizetti Concertino in F as well as works of the lesser-known composers Pilotti and Mares, recorded by Mr. Diaz and members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. Biggam has also prepared arrangements and settings of works for symphonic band, which have been performed by the Piedmont Wind Symphony.
