    On Facebook there is a picture of Tuva Semmringsen propagating through air. If you haven't checked her out, you should. She sings some of the best Vivaldi on the planet - in the air she is singing something quite different!

    You know, after thinking about it for a day or so...I would absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a trumpet I could pull out that sounded like a flute.
    "CONNsternation" would have to be the model name.

    Schilke got close many years ago with a test bell made of lead. That kind of destroyed the sound of standard articulation too.

    I can imagine "how that went over".
    The test player probably had to work on the biceps more than the embouchure.
