Used by ancient societies for signalling purposes, the trumpet is one of the world's oldest musical instruments, although the role it plays within ensembles has repeatedly been transformed. This volume, by two of its foremost modern exponents, focuses on developments in the instrument's music, design and playing techniques since the Renaissance, such as the introduction of valves in the 19th century, the trumpet's important contribution to jazz and its re-emergence as a solo instrument in contemporary classical works. The Yale Musical Instrument Series.
