    Pacho played this on a 4 valve Stomvi prototype flugelhorn. This is originally a piece written for guitar.

    OK. I'm not sure how much the Courtois flugel's 4th valve lowers the tone but it looks very similar in architecture to the Stomvi.

    I guess one will adapt the playing anyway. As I understand it, there isn't really much music written specifically for the instrument, its vocation is rather to play music written for other instruments with a low register that is inaccessible to 3 valve Bb brass horns.
