Heinrich Domnich (1767-1844) was professor of horn specializing in cor basse at the Paris Conservatory from its inception in 1795 until 1817. He was a student of the famous virtuoso Giovanni Punto. Domnich was the teacher of many influential hornists of the nineteenth century including Louis François Dauprat, Jean-Baptiste Mengal and Eduard Constantine Lewy. Domnich wrote a Méthode de Premier et Second Cor published in 1808, which was one of the most detailed methods for hand horn and the first to discuss the history of the instrument. He also wrote 3 solo concerti for the horn and a Symphonie Concertante for 2 horns.The 1st Concerto was composed between 1797 and 1802 and is thought to have been premiered in April 1803. It was performed by Joseph Pierre-Charles Petit, a student of Domnich’s, in the Paris Conservatory concert series. As the title indicates, it is a piece for premier cor (first horn), or high horn, and emphasizes the instrument’s upper register. This edition provides a piano reduction of the orchestral accompaniment while transcribing faithfully Domnich’s solo part. Original articulations have been preserved. Doubling of the orchestral horn parts in the introduction has been removed from the solo part. Several cues and courtesy accidentals have been added to aid the performer as well as illustrations of some of the ornamentations employed.
