The modern F horn has 3 valves, circular coils of narrow tubing flaring at the one end to a wide bell, and a funnel-shaped mouthpiece that accounts for the horn's soft, mellow tone. The double horn in F and Bb, introduced about 1900, is rapidly superseding the F horn. Equipped with an extra valve to switch to the Bb tubing, it offers certain technical advantages. It is debatable if it is possible to trace the invention of the French Horn to one person. However, two inventors are named as the first to invent a valve for the horn.
There are however accidentals throughout the piece, albeit rare. For example, he uses an F# in bar 10, which is from the tonic major, the scale of G major. This isn’t a common feature throughout the piece, apart from when he’s modulating to another key. Mozart uses a range of different keys throughout this piece, with it in G minor from bars 1 – 20. In the following 24 bars (20 – 44) it modulates to the relative major, being B flat major, which it remains in for the next 55 or so bars, at the end of which it returns to G minor.
a fugue or sonata. However, this prelude is a stand alone composition. Chopin had been studying ‘The Well-Tempered Clavier’ by J.S. Bach which contains 48 preludes and fugues – two in every major and minor key. The ‘Raindrop Prelude’ is one in a collection of 24 by Chopin.
Using no vocals, a song called the “Dixie Jazz Band One-Step” as constructed with these five different instruments. It was recorded under the leadership of cornetist Nick LaRoca in 1917. The drummer in the piece has a soft undertone that is called a “roll-off”, a devise usually played by a parade bands drummer to prepare the musicians to march, under the horns. The pitch and rhythm of this piece tend to blend together to make a very complimentary sound to the ear. Cymbals are used sparingly and when the use of a cymbal crash this symbolizes something significant in the piece.

Benjamin David Goodman was born in Chicago on May 30, 1909. Benjamin or “Benny” was the ninth child of eleven raised by his mother and father, David and Dora Goodman. He picked up the clarinet at the age of ten and took lessons in Chicago. Goodman started the Benny Goodman Trio in 1935 and a short seven months later it became the Benny Goodman Quartet. He performed in numerous venues, such as Carnegie Hall in 1938, the Palomar Ballroom in Los Angeles, and the Paramount Theatre.
By 16, he made the successful choice to switch to the baritone saxophone and was then involved in the Lucky Thompson’s band in 1947. His music has been described as being “very long, tumbling, double-time melodic lines. And that raw, piercing, bark-like timbre”. He had an amazing ability to play the difficult baritone at very fast paces of hard bop music like no other player had before. Some of his most famous songs include; Binary, Alone Together, and Now in Our lives.
He began to master the alto saxophone by the age of thirteen. The first ensemble Lester played in was with his family. The family band would play at carnivals and other different events. By 1927 Lester departed with the family band and took his talents elsewhere. Once he left his family’s household he explored other bands and first settled with Art Bronson’s Bostonians.
In the harmony we have a minor triad on the 6th and 5th degree, also a harmonic device used a lot in gospel music. On the 9th bar Miles plays the major seventh, Cannonball the 4th,Coltrane doubles Miles an octave lower and the rhythm section plays a dominant chord on the 5th. This voicing is then three times transposed and they end up playing on the eleventh bar the same voicing with the flat six on top, which means the rhythm section is playing a dominant chord on the flat seventh, which then resolves back to one after two bars and which is a substitution of a very gospel like chord change, 4 minor to
In Suite No.2 of The Water Music, the oboes mostly double violins 1 and 2 however did not double their quavers suggesting they were not yet as agile as the oboes used today, or occasionally play their own motifs with the bassoon. In a baroque orchestra the bassoon was used to double the bassline and in Water Music it plays alongside the oboes to proivde timbral contrast. The horns in a typical baroque orchestra had a problem at the time, they could only play notes of the harmonic series in which they were crooked. This meant their melodic material was limited by what they could play however Handel solved this problem in Water Music by using D major for each movement and rarely straying from it in sections where the horns were playing. He also devised a second horn part to harmonise the first using the notes of a D major arpeggio.
