9780810826458: The Keyed Bugle

An Irish bandmaster named Joseph Haliday added woodwind-style keys to the military bugle in 1810. The invention created a flexible brass instrument that was widely used in bands, opera, social orchestras, parlor music, and even circus music. This book is the definitive study of the keyed bugle and its role in European and American music in the 19th century. Dudgeon provides essential information on keyed bugle makers, performers, method books, and solo and ensemble music. Chapter topics include the keyed bugle in Europe and in the United States, the revival, methods, literature, performance practice, and makers and sellers. Bibliography and index.
