How high can/do you play with the flugelhorn
Yes, ROWUK is very right: the Flügelhorn has a very long history, and was not invented for ballads or jazz-improvisations...
I did not think about that, when I attended ,last saturday (for the first time) the rehearsal of the local WIND-BAND (wind-band = Brass-Band + woodwinds).I heard little girls playing with old, broken rotary-flugels from eastern Europe in the upper register and I, with my nice new Adams-flugel (with very BIG mouthpiece), felt not comfortable, even I was a little ashamed, because they expected a great leadsound from me...
that´s why I started this thread...
In the next rehearsal, I´ll just ask the director for 2º flugelhorn parts (to relax, yeah) or scores for trumpet, and I´ll let the nice little girls screaaaaaaaam.........................
HAHA!!! Next thread topic: Screamer flugel mpcs!!!
The brass band versions of Coriolan (Beethoven) or William Tell (Rossini) need exactly that - effortless upper register with very little emphasis on "breadth" of tone. There are a lot of charts out there that are really challenging for those with a narrow scope about the way things are...........
Alright, I'm digging through my mpc box to see what I can find!
Thank goodness the flugelhorn broadened it's horizons. No?
In the times of Ludwig van B., there were still no piston, or rotary flugels, and he also did not use the natural bugle in the orchestra. So the the brass band versions of Coriolan is the work of a modern arranger. Do they really know the flugelhorn ?
