Description: More agile than the bass tuba which eventually replaced it, the ophicléide was also well-adapted for lyrical and salon-style music which is what most 19th century composers for the instrument wrote (but the Glinka transcription is the most fun here!). Trio Ænea with Corentin Morvan and Oscar Abella Martín (second and third ophicléides).
