    Last night I played with the local symphony.
    The one thing That I got to play was 1812.

    I have read a lot of stuff on here on what trumpet to play, C or B flat and all that but; While I was there playing I started to think, Why did Tchaikovsky write it for E flat trumpet?
    Was the C trumpet not invented yet or did he write for the sound he wanted?
