Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Introduces an Historic Brass Society (Bucina) series by recounting the history of an instrument that dominated English orchestral playing in the 19th century and preserved tonal concepts of Baroque times nearly into the 20th century. The slide trumpet was conceived and developed to improve the intonation of the natural trumpet and create a chromatic instrument. The music written for it and the playing techniques are also described. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
