Flugelhorn Standard Library

Quick Overview


The Flugelhorn in Bb is a member of the bugle-horns family like the euphonium or the (contra)bass tuba, even though the instrument looks rather like a larger trumpet. The name originates from the "Flügelmeister" of the 18th century, who had to coordinate various regimental flanks in a battle with blasts from the instrument. Beyond its use in military and marching bands it is a favorite solo instrument in jazz music today. Being almost as flexible as the trumpet, the flugelhorn features a much softer and warmer tone due to its cone-shaped and wide bell.
