The opening movement is thoroughly modern in outlook, and grand in scale, form and orchestration, requiring a sizeable orchestra. The result is a splendid movement for both soloist and orchestra which contrasts the striking opening with a more light-hearted second subject. The Finale, the most light-hearted of the three, conceals a march by Cherubini which at the time of the first performance would have been well known; no longer familiar to us, the joke is today usually lost.

The writing throughout the movement provides the trumpeter with virtuosic trills and flourishes in a variety of keys. This concerto clearly suited Weidinger, for he kept it in his repertoire for many years. Da wir heute nicht mehr so mit ihm vertraut sind, bleibt dieser Scherz meist unverstanden.
