Winds

Over the past four decades an active acquisitions program has enhanced significantly the Collection’s holdings of wind instruments. In addition to a core collection of fine examples by important 18th and 19th-century European makers, the flourishing school of makers that arose after 1800 on this side of the Atlantic is now especially well represented at Yale.

Highlights include a Deutsche schalmei by Haka, oboes by Denner, Floth, and Triébert; cors anglais by Brod and Triebert, flageolets by Bainbridge and Firth, Pond, and Co.; flutes by Cahusac, Stanesby and Hopkins; clarinets by Martin frères and Uhlmann; bassoons by Milhouse and Lempp, a natural trumpet by Sauerle, a circular cornet by Graves, and a serpent by D’Almaine & Co.
