A fascinating book, copiously illustrated, that traces the evolution and colourful performance history of the trumpet. The authors, John Wallace and Alexander McGrattan chart the introduction of the trumpet and its family into art music, and its rise to prominence as a solo instrument, from the Baroque 'golden age', through the advent of valved brass instruments in the nineteenth century, and the trumpet's renaissance in the jazz age.
