This essay expresses my belief that classical era performance practice advocates for embellishments and improvisation in the second movement of Haydn's Trumpet Concerto in Eb Major.
Guiding principles for appropriate classical era embellishments are gleaned from an anylsis of Mvt II. Andante un poco adagio from Mozart’s Piano Sonate in C, K. 309 composed in 1777. 
A transcription of Gerard Scharwz's embellishments of Mvt. II Andante from Haydn's Trumpet Concerto in Eb Major are also analyzed. 
Thoughts and comments gladly welcomed. Happy reading!
