So what is it, finally? One instrumentwith many names or a variety of instruments? The tenor horn and its counterpart, the baritone, are of one family, the brass wind instruments. At a glace, the different horns are almost identical. So what's the difference? Does a musician who knows how to play the one, also know how to play the other? A word of warning: if you think you can change from one horn to another just like that in an orchestra, beware: the scores for the tenor horn uses treble clef notation, for the baritone bass clef notation. But there are further differences!
