OK - recently I have been in contact with 2 members here who play the flugelhorn. One TM member insists that playing a Double High C (6 spaces above the staff) is something His audience likes and asks for -- or otherwise approve of. While the other opinion is that a Flugel horn is meant for easy smooth mellow music, and certainly the question is -WHY? why would anyone want to play a flugel horn in the altissimo range anyhow?
what is your opinion -- and how do you determine what your audience appreciates? - especially for flugel (and or other instrument) enthusiasts
