The RLPO ‘Trumpet’ Section

Here’s a rare snap! The trumpet section of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra all playing flugel horns at the same time during yesterday’s James Bond programme.

      I had a summer season nearly 30 years ago. I needed a flugel quickly. It was the cheapest oldest most beaten up one in Parker’s shop. They were about to cut it up into spares! Anyway, it’s still with me and the other two boys in the section always borrowed it until recently. You can get a Bach Elkhart for about £200 pounds brand new. They’re very shiny and sound great!
