The Baritone Horn (often just known as the baritone) is a low-pitched brass instrument in the saxhorn family. Due to similar pitches can usually also play music written for a trombone. People who play the Baritone Horn are called Baritonists. The Baritone Horn is pitched in concert B♭, which means that when played (with no valves) the Baritone Horn will produce partials of the B♭ harmonic series. When writing music for the Baritone Horn it can be written in either the bass clef or the treble clef. Similar to the trombone or Euphonium, the Baritone Horn has a nine-foot brass tube, and valves that are often piston-style. It is predominantly of conical bore, like the Euphonium, but has a narrower bore than the euphonium.
Like all other instruments in the brass family, the baritone uses the 'buzzing' of the lips to produce sound. It shares a similar mouthpiece to the trombone (another instrument in the brass family) and also plays the same notes as one. In regard to method, a baritone horn works in the same way as a trumpet… It uses valves to produce different pitches and air flows instead of sliders, meaning it is an easier instrument for beginners to learn. The lovely tone of the baritone makes it very attractive to people learning brass, and as an instrument, it can also be a gateway to playing the tuba. Where is the Baritone Horn played?
Thought to be invented by Ferdinand Sommer in 1843, Baritone Horns can be found all over the world. They are extremely popular for brass bands and military bands, and sometimes found in orchestras too. Here are some additional facts about the baritone horn:
