French Horn History

In the 1600’s in Europe, a single-coiled metal instrument was used as a signaling instrument for the hunt and for battle. Even though it had the curved tubing like the French horn shape we know of today, it was still called a trumpet.  

Around 1680, in Paris, the first official French horn used for hunting was invented. The French horn then began being used in orchestras. It could only play a few notes, though. That all changed in 1818 when valves were invented. Enjoy listening to these replicas of original French horns.
