Book description
In ihrem Buch stellen Ralph T. Dudgeon und Franz X. Streitweiser die Flügelhörner der Sammlung Streitwieser Kremsegg in detaillierten Einzelanalysen vor und beschreiben die Entwicklung dieser Instrumenten-Gattung von den frühen Formen über die Halbmond-Signalhörner, Klappenhörner, italienischen Flicorni und Clarinhörner bis hin zu den modernen Flügelhörnern. Dabei wird deutlich, wie sehr die Entwicklungsgeschichte des Flügelhorns mit der musikalischen Aufführungspraxis der jeweiligen Zeit verknüpft ist. Darüber hinaus gehen die Autoren auf die Ikonographie des Flügelhorns ein, beschreiben zugehöriges Material und auch Patente und geben einen Überblick über das gängige Repertoire des Instruments.

Making a Natural Trumpet. an Illustrated Workshop Guide by Richard Seraphinoff, Raymond Parks, and Robert Barclay

Book description
This book illustrates each stage in the manufacture of a natural trumpet, starting from flat brass sheet and following as closely as possible the methods, materials and tools of 17th and 18th century craftsmen; the metalworkers of Nürnberg, who worked with a basic technology that relied for its speed and efficiency on hand skill. Using their simple tools and techniques anybody can make a trumpet very much as they did. The text is profusely illustrated with colour photographs taken at one of the trumpet-making workshops which have been successfully run by Bob Barclay and Rick Seraphinoff over several years. Participants have included players, makers and repairers of modern instruments, historians and collectors. All have left with a real appreciation of the craft of the baroque trumpet maker, and have produced their own playable instrument, a copy of a trumpet made by Hanns Hainlein in Nürnberg in 1632. The descriptions cover the processes by which tubes are seamed and joined, bells are hammered to shape and then burnished on a mandrel, bows are filled with molten metal and bent, and decorations are engraved and punched.

The Art of the Trumpet-Maker. The Materials, Tools, and Techniques of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries in Nuremberg (Oxford Early Music Series) by Robert Barclay

Book description
"Highly recommended for its important, and unique, contribution to our better understanding of the natural trumpet itself and also for identifying many issues that require and merit further enquirya and investigation." "An essential book for makers which will also stimulate and enlighten players. It is very well worth reading from cover to cover, although readers will find themselves dipping into it again and again."

The Cambridge Companion to Brass Instruments (Cambridge Companions to Music) by Trevor Herbert

Book description
'The narrative is rich in detail, supported by an extensive glossary and bibliography. It is surely a book that will quickly find its way onto the bookshelves not only of the serious brass student, for whom it will become essential reading, but also of those readers with a more casual interest in the history and development of the instruments we play today.' Brass Band World 'This encyclopaedic volume is long overdue, providing some long-range retrospection now that the technical development of brass instruments is over ... this is essential reading for any serious player, conservatoire student or keen listener'. BBC Music Magazine 'This book is quite simply the most important on the subject since anthony Baines' classic Brass Instruments: their history and development appeared a generation ago ... infectious in its enthusiasm, comprehensible to a layman, and entirely absorbing.

The Last Trumpet. A History of the English Slide Trumpet by James Arthur Brownlow

Book description
The nineteenth-century English slide trumpet was the last trumpet with the traditional sound of the old classic trumpet. The instrument was essentially a natural trumpet to which had been added a movable slide with a return mechanism. It was England's standard orchestral trumpet, despite the dominance of natural and, ultimately, valved instruments elsewhere, and it remained in use by leading English players until the last years of the century. The slide trumpet's dominating role in nineteenth-century English orchestral playing has been well documented, but until now, the use of the instrument in solo and ensemble music has been given only superficial consideration. Art Brownlow's study is a new and thorough assessment of the slide trumpet. It is the first comprehensive examination of the orchestral, ensemble and solo literature written for this instrument. Other topics include the precursors of the nineteenth-century instrument, its initial development and subsequent modifications, its technique, and the slide trumpet's slow decline. Appendices include checklists of English trumpeters and slide trumpetmakers.

The Trombone (Yale Musical Instrument Series) by Trevor Herbert

Book description
This is the first comprehensive study of the trombone in English. It covers the instrument, its repertoire, the way it has been played, and the social, cultural, and aesthetic contexts within which it has developed. The book explores the origins of the instrument, its invention in the fifteenth century, and its story up to modern times, also revealing hidden aspects of the trombone in different eras and countries. The book looks not only at the trombone within classical music but also at its place in jazz, popular music, popular religion, and light music. Trevor Herbert examines each century of the trombone’s development and details the fundamental impact of jazz on the modern trombone. By the late twentieth century, he shows, jazz techniques had filtered into the performance idioms of almost all styles of music and transformed ideas about virtuosity and lyricism in trombone playing.

UMI's hi-tech horn making. (United Musical Instruments USA Inc.) (School Music Market Report) by

Book description
Over the past few decades, the general design of wind instruments have remained virtually unchanged. To the average student, they look the same and they play the same, which prompts many to mistakenly conclude that they are manufactured in the same way. In actuality, the static nature of instrument design belies a dramatic revolution in manufacturing technologies. Faced with sharply rising labor costs, a shortage of skilled laborers, and an increasingly quality-conscious market, wind instrument, interested in meeting these demands have restructured their manufacturing operations over the past decade. Thus, while a player from twenty years ago would be at home with any new horn, an instrument maker from twenty years ago would be confounded new methods of production…

Valved Brass. The History of an Invention by Christian Ahrens

Book description
In the history of brass instruments, few developments can rival the early nineteenth-century invention of the valve for enduring significance. Nevertheless, the acceptance of valved brass instruments proved controversial, as newspapers and other documents repeatedly attest. Christian Ahrens (Ruhr-Universität Bochum) in his important monograph, Eine Erfindung und ihre Folgen: Blechblasinstrumente mit Ventilen (1986), devotes considerable attention to this heated controversy, as he traces the early use of valved brass instruments in the realms of art music, military music, and Volksmusik. Stressing social and aesthetic issues over the more familiar mechanical aspects, the author draws on a rich body of journalistic source material to detail a compelling reception history.
