Video on demand: The Orchestral Instruments: The TrumpetsKids event

The trumpet has a bright and clear tone, which can be heard very clearly even within a symphonic sound cluster. Perhaps you have heard the trumpet playing a grand fanfare? But it can do much more!

The instrument has a long history and exists today in several versions. The trumpet belongs to the brass section of the orchestra. Many times it makes its mark in the end of a a powerful symphony – as a musical exclamation mark!

This video is part of a series of playful videos on how the instruments used in a symphony orchestra function and sound. In each film, musicians from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra talk about their instruments and play one or several musical pieces together.

The series about the orchestral instruments is produced with the support of Konserthuset Stockholm's main sponsor SEB.
