I made my orchestral debut in France in 1657, however, I have been known for many centuries – perhaps dating all the back to Ancient Greece. My size varies and my construction is complicated. I can make many beautiful t sounds; these can be romantic, melancholic, or happy and playful, I can also convey my discontent. My lovely presence is required in almost every concert. Big ego? Not so, just the truth. I am one of the most challenging instruments and love to have skilled masters play me well. I can play different genres of music. Wanted by many!

I am a fascinating instrument and have quite a presence! You can find me played in concert bands, in symphony, chamber music, etc. I am a woodwind instrument capable of producing many rich tones, I am elegant and often of intense coloring. I am tall and distinguished, made of six parts. Although I have been played since earlier times, my modern style was introduced in the 19th century. Am I easy to play? Do I have any concerts pieces composed just for me? There is so much to learn about me!
