I made my orchestral debut in France in 1657, however, I have been known for many centuries – perhaps dating all the way back to Ancient Greece.  My size varies and my construction is complicated.  I can make many beautiful 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!
