A Definitive Insight into the Evolution of the Trumpet

posted in: Music & Books | 0

In the first major book devoted to the trumpet in more than two decades, John Wallace and Alexander McGrattan trace the surprising evolution and colourful performance history of one of the world’s oldest instruments.

They 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.

This comprehensive and definitive reference book offers a fascinating insight to the evolution of the trumpet.
